Dear Friends,

We know why we “hunt”.

We want to save lives.  Inspired by Lori Gill Grennan, we are doing all we can to fund research and spare others the suffering caused by Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  Our hunters have something to be really proud of, so we hope you take a moment and read our update.  Soon we will have expanded articles on our work reflecting the research progress.

Lori Gill Grennan passed away on January 21, 2013 as a result of Inflammatory Breast Cancer. We “hunt” to carry out her mission. Though Lori has moved on to a better life, her legacy lives on through her family and friends and the wonderful charity event that you so passionately support. The Ohio Hunt for Hope® has raised over $267,000 dollars in four years, and broke the 2014 record of $62,000, totaling just over $67,000! Your generosity helped to fund nine research projects, two of which are clinical trials in Houston and one is continuing some research started in Belgium for skin metastases, which will be conducted at the University of Delaware.  We have now funded research at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson Hospital, Ingram Vanderbilt Hospital and now this new addition to our list, the University of Delaware.   This would not have been possible without Ohio’s support and our ALL VOLUNTEER organization.   We hope you will follow this link and read more about the work we have funded.

To date, we have funded $540,500 toward research.  This is a huge accomplishment and we wish everyone of you could be with us, to see joy on the faces of the researchers at their opportunity to study this disease.  They share our passion to stop Inflammatory Breast Cancer forever.  We will make Inflammatory Breast Cancer history and it is all due to your kind support.

 

Hope always,

Hunt for Hope® Ohio!
