Dr. Leonard sends his greetings to all our friends, family and supporters of the cancer research fund! We hope you are having a great summer and looking forward to some cool fall weather in the next months.  Speaking of cool, there are some things happening around here that we thought you might be interested in!

Doc’s Cancer Shootout: Thursday, April 11th, 2019
We have some new things happening with Doc’s Cancer Shootout 2019. It is scheduled for Thursday, April 11th, and we will be offering an optional morning Sporting Clays competition for anyone interested. We are also pushing to get enough people in attendance to support 2 fields this year so shooters can spread out a bit more. Please mark your calendars and plan on attending the full day, half day, or dinner/auctions portion of the day. As it gets closer, more information will be available at Can’t wait to see everyone again!

Lab Tour and Update
We will be scheduling a lab tour in September or October to show folks around who want to learn more about the progress that your generous contributions have made possible. Please let us know if are interested in attending the lab tour and we will let you know the details once it is scheduled. Attending the lab tour is so inspiring as you get to see the work in action and have Dr. Saltzman and Lance Augustin personally explain the progress of the research.

Hubbard Broadcasting Foundation Matching Funds Grant
We have completed the 3 year Matching Funds Challenge commitment from Hubbard Broadcasting Foundation, and were able to meet the challenge all 3 years with your hard work! Thank YOU, for making this possible.
