Cancer Research

As most of you know we work very closely with the University of South Florida on several research projects that we feel are vital to helping cancer patients in the future.
These are not lab/clinical or medical research projects but more along the lines of how cancer affects patients/survivors and how we can get answers to help now….while we wait and pray that the medical researchers will find a cure.
Please read this request for participants and help if you are able. Please feel free to share with any other cancer patients and encourage their participation, Thank you!

Have you been diagnosed with cancer?
Have you completed cancer treatment in the last 5 years?
Have you been prescribed medication for pain since your cancer diagnosis?
If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study.
Eligible participants will be paid a $30 gift card for completing a 45 minute interview about their understanding and perceptions of the medications prescribed to manage pain after cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Spring has Sprung!

Make the most of Spring by cleaning out your closet and breathing new life into your Designer Bags you no longer use.

Faces of Courage Cancer Camps is launching a new campaign called ‘Purses for Hope and Courage’. We are looking for new, like new and gently used designer handbags/clutches/purses/crossovers to be donated to Faces of Courage Foundation. We will take the best ones use them for our Event Silent Auctions and if enough of them come in we will host a dedicated silent auction sale day.
ALL donations are tax deductible. If you will complete a donation form and insert it into your donated Designer Bags we will mail you a form for your taxes.
The proceeds generated by Purses for Hope and Courage will go to fund our Faces of Courage Programs. Faces of Courage is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that since 2004 has provided FREE of charge day outings, educational workshops and weekend camps for children, adults and families who have been touched by any type of cancers or blood disorders. Faces of Courage has hosted over 8,300 campers at programs.
