SA Cancer Council Hosts Annual Cure Cancer Card Community Fundraiser

It was 1984 in San Antonio, and a group of pioneering women saw a need that deserved attention. Cancer was effecting a growing number of their friends and family each year, and it was clear that more resources were needed to research cures. Soon thereafter, the group came together to form a nonprofit organization dedicated solely to raise funds in support of the Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC). These founders had one goal in mind: to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The founding group included community leaders Edith McAllister, Lois Yancy and first president Jane Cole. Since 1984, the members of the now SA Cancer Council have worked to raise awareness and millions of dollars in funds for the Mays Cancer Center at UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center. 


Musings on all types of topics, both the timeless and the timely, contributed by women from diverse locations who are journeying their respective paths of life.
