Dear Family and Friends,
DD&BCF would like to update you on the status of contributions from our initial kick-off party. We have 3 contributions scheduled for the month of March. I’ve been in close contact with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital representatives. Thanks to the generosity of many we’re able to make 2 gift donations to the “Quality of Life Fund” and the “Head and Neck Fund”. The Quality of Life Fund at the Kimmel Cancer Center helps those patients who need special services or financial assistance. Our gift to this fund would help to assure that others receive the same type of great care that I received. The Head and Neck Fund supports research in that area. Jefferson is committed to cutting edge research as well as world-class patient care. Our gift to this fund helps to launch promising new lines of inquiry and keep existing research projects going. The Foundation is pleased to donate to these 2 Jefferson Funds that serve our mission statement.
Our third gift donation will go directly to an individual in our community of friends. Molly is a 6th grader who has been battling osteosarcoma (bone cancer) most of her young life. She is one of 7 children and this has understandably taken a toll on the entire family. Thanks to the very generous donations from our initial event – Molly and her family will be a recipient from the Foundation. We Believe Molly!!!
