Cancer Hits Us All
I don’t discuss this often, but cancer has hit my family hard. We lost my brother-in-law a year and a half ago to liver cancer, my husband’s son-in-law passed away 8 months ago from pancreatic cancer, and both my sister and I are breast cancer survivors. Very few of us today remain untouched by this ugly C-word, and so I’m taking a stand and working towards a cure!
A while back, I was introduced to a miraculous charity, The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. This summer I am honored to be Chairing their event, The Hamptons Happening, to raise money for the fight against cancer.
The Waxman Foundation
Dr. Samuel Waxman is a visionary in the study of oncology. His nonprofit foundation, started in 1976, is dedicated to preventing, fighting, and curing cancer. The Waxman Foundation has provided grants to more than 175 researchers all over the world. Their focus is in reprogramming cancer cells and eradicating the root causes of cancer.
One of the things we do best at Flirting With Flavors is coordinating elegant events for individuals and organizations. I hosted a cocktail party several weeks ago to introduce some of my friends to Dr. Waxman. Now I’m hoping that you too will get involved with this groundbreaking Foundation.
As you can see, even though we are tackling such a heavy subject, the cocktail party was big fun! I’d love to see all of you at the Hamptons Happening this summer. Click HERE to purchase your ticket. Todd English, one of my favorite chefs, will be taking the lead in the kitchen that night. And 20 other restaurants will be represented as well as dancing and a fantastic silent auction!
My hope is that one day all of our fundraising and research will be a thing of the past, and we can say a final farewell to this wretched disease.
