May 2015 TBBCF Newsletter

Keeping Logan’s Promise

Logan’s Promise honors its Founder, Norma Logan. Her promise in establishing this great organization was to direct 100% of gross fundraising dollars to breast cancer research and for the Foundation to be financially transparent so that everyone, from sponsors and donors to volunteers and walk participants, can plainly see that the organization is meeting its target. We are proud to bring you this edition of Logan’s Promise.

Message from the Executive Director

 

Dear TBBCF Supporters,

 

Sandy Maniscalco – Interim Executive Director

Hope you are enjoying this great summer-like weather. I am happy to report that TBBCF – The Little Non-Profit that could – is on track! April and May proved to be every bit as active as the first quarter.  We accomplished a good deal in the past two months. It is largely thanks to the support of many volunteers who spent numerous hours working on the 10th Annual Meeting, the 2015 sponsorship campaign, marketing and website support and planning and executing visits with TBBCF 2014-15 grant recipients. More

TBBCF 10th Annual Meeting
The May 12 TBBCF 10th Annual Meeting was a huge success. About 55 individuals attended the event hosted and sponsored by the TBBCF Board. Participants enjoyed a buffet supper while enjoying the speaking program.  Speakers included Patti Burmahl, John LaMattina, PhD and Howie Brensilver, MD.

 

David Page, MD
In attendance was David Page, MD., from Memorial Sloan Kettering, our 2014 grant recipient who spoke about his breast cancer research using immunotherapy.
Eugen Dhimolea, PhD

Also speaking was Eugen Dhimolea, PhD, from Dana Farber Cancer Institute, a 2015 grant recipient, who is involved in a study that is expected to identify plausible therapeutic targets and potentially to generate a novel tool of personalized medicine for the evaluation of treatment options in patients with advanced breast cancer.
