Oncology department throws a party

October 4, 2007

On Wednesday the Earthbound Angel team was invited to the Oncology Department for a party to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the breast cancer drug Femara.

We had the opportunity to meet Amy Hughes (mother of Olympic figure skater, Sarah Hughes). Amy is a breast cancer survivor and she spoke about her fight. It was very inspirational, especially her closing remarks that she hopes in the near future our walk will be for exercise only.

I was asked to introduce the walkers from Novartis. We received an enthusiastic round of applause, especially when our fundraising total of $77,000 was announced.

Afterwards we were treated to cake and ice cream sundaes. Good thing we’re walking 40 miles this week… we’ll need it to get rid of all those calories.
