Thank you again for FOS’s vote of confidence in my work and the $500 grant to attend the National Breast Cancer Coalition Conference May 2-5, 2015 in Crystal City, VA. The conference was all that I had expected in terms of the contents, quality and variety of information shared, great speakers, and wonderful networking opportunities. I am pleased that I met Ann Fofa, Breast Cancer Survivor, Founder and Executive Director, The Annie AppleSeed Project, who will visit Washington on July 20, 2015 at 6:30 pm at Westminster Church to discuss the use of natural food and it relationship to preventing cancer reoccurrence as well as preventing a host of chronic diseases. A mutual friend had told me about Ann for quite a while so meeting her by happenstance was a joy.

The July 20 event is being sponsored by The Thelma D. Jones Breast Cancer Fund (TDJ BDF) and would appreciate if you or a designated member can attend and give 3-5 minutes greetings on behalf of FOS in appreciation of your support in awarding me the grant to attend the NBCC Conference.

Thank you again for supporting my efforts and I hope that you or a designated person will be able to attend. As a matter of fact, FOS as a whole is invited to attend.
