Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.

This year’s event was held at the UM Alumni Hall with food by
Mena Catering and the wine courtesy of Pantry Liquors II. We had over 150 people attend and raised almost $30K. We can continue our mission of helping children with cancer and their families!!!
Thank you to our speakers, Dr. Steven Lipshultz (2015-2016 research grant recipient), Nikki Mejia (BCH Hem/Onc Clinic Nurse) with Sofia Miranda (NP at NCH Hem/Onc Clinic) and Ivette Arosemena (mother of teen survivor).
