Welcome from the Honorary Founder
(Excerpt from the Event Program)

I want to thank you all for being here and for contributing so generously to our cause.

I never could have imagined the tremendous outpouring of love and support that has come my way since my diagnosis. Genuine concern, deep compassion and help of every kind came from countless friends and family. Even more, I am amazed by the kindness and generosity of people I barely knew. People who could easily have turned the other way, instead stepped forward and offered their help. I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful community. I want you all to know that your support has strengthened me, lifted my spirits and given me hope. For that I cannot thank you enough.

So many people have worked tirelessly to make this night possible. It gives me pleasure to know that I had a part in inspiring these efforts. I know that that this is only the beginning of the Foundation’s work in the area of triple negative breast cancer. I honestly believe that, with the Foundation’s efforts and your continued support, we can move toward finding a cure.

Inaugural Cocktail Reception for the

Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation®

In Honor of Nancy Block-Zenna

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

The TNBC Foundation® recently hosted its inaugural fundraiser – Peace, Love and a Cure. Our goal was to increase awareness of triple negative breast cancer and to raise money for research specifically targeted toward this disease. The event was an enormous success, raising more money than we ever thought possible at this early stage. We raised approximately $230,000 after expenses! Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received about the event, we are hopeful that this is only the first of many successful fundraising efforts.
