Head For A Cure at the 5th annual Mardi Gras MASKerade, the foundation’s main fundraiser on February 8, 2020 at The Phoenix, 812 Race Street, downtown Cincinnati. Plan to join us for an evening of music, magic and lots of fun. Face painting, tarot readers, raffles and the ever-popular Constellation Brands' Benn Banks Wine Win Duck Pond will be back. In addition to many wonderful items, a special item in this year's silent auction is a one week/7 nights stay in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in Rome, which sleeps 4-5 - and the silent auction will again be available online! 

Purchase individual or table sponsorship tickets online NOW! The limited discounted "early bird" tickets are still available online, but are not likely to remain long!

 

When you Head For A Cure with us at the Mardi Gras MASKerade, Great Food for a Great Cause, or any other event, you truly are working to end head and neck cancer by funding innovative research. Your gifts to Brandon’s Foundation allowed us to award two grants of $25,000 in 2019. Trisha Wise-Draper, MD, PhD, was the recipient of the $25,000 University of Cincinnati Cancer Center’s (UCCC) Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Pilot Grant for her research proposal Inhibiting the IL-6 and pSTAT3 Pathway in Natural Killer Cells for Treatment of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma. The second research proposal funded at $25,000 was awarded to Stephen Y. Lai, MD, PhD, of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for a “next step” renewal project, Testing the Efficacy of miR-27a* in Preclinical Models of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC)

THANK YOU for your ongoing support! You are making a difference in the effort to find less-debilitating treatments and put an end to head and neck cancer. Because of you the day will come when no other families will have to know the profound sadness of missing a vital member due to this disease.

Last week Brandon's Foundation awarded a second 2019 grant of $25,000 for a head and neck research proposal. (More on the 2019 grant awardees and their projects soon!) This means your generosity has allowed us to award $50,000 to promising research during 2019 and a total of $236,000 since 2014! 

December 3rd is #GivingTuesday. We hope you will again remember Brandon's Foundation next Tuesday and help us continue to fund the innovative research that will lead to less-debilitating treatments and the cures that are so needed for head and neck cancers. Donations may be made online at the Foundation's Donate page or or via the mailing address available on the Contact page. (If donating online, be sure to click "Continue" after assuring us you are not a robot!) Thank you for your ongoing support!

Brandon's Foundation will host the 5th annual Mardi Gras MASKerade to Head for a Cure the evening of Saturday, February 8, 2020 at The Phoenix in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. Last year's event raised $29,500 and with your help the 2020 event will raise more than $30,000 for research. For information on sponsorship levels, hosting a table or donating items for the silent auction, please contact us via email - bcg.headneckcafdn@gmail.com. Tickets for the evening will soon go on sale online, so continue to visit our web site. More details will be available soon!
