Susan G. Komen for the Cure Gala

Over last weekend, the Susan G. Komen Foundation celebrated 30 years of research and education, including an A-list dinner for donors on Friday at the Kuwaiti Embassy.  The Kuwaiti dinner was the kickoff to a weekend full of activities sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, including the "Honoring the Promise" event at the Kennedy Center Saturday evening with Laura Bush.  The Kuwaiti Embassy holds a special place in my heart because I was honored at the Kuwaiti Embassy for my work as a youth ambassador to the Kuwait-American Foundation's "Do The Write Thing Campaign" which gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives through classroom discussions and writings. 

Where are all the breast cancer donations going this month?

Do you know?  To breast cancer research, education, some national organization? Why not keep your donations in the community?   Help someone locally who cannot afford their treatments.....like The Tigerlily Foundation has done time and time again!

The Tigerlily Foundation's motto is “impacting young women’s lives before, during and after breast cancer.”   It has been helping local victims of breast cancer with financial assistance when breast cancer strikes, and health insurance may not be enough.
