September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month?

SBB Management's 2nd Annual Golf Classic
Monday, September 20th
Lantana Golf Club
Fred Shapiro of SBB Management is an Advisory Board Member of CCF. He raised near $40,000 from this event in 2009, and he hopes to exceed that amount this year. The event is held in honor of Fred's daughter Melinda, who is a pediatric cancer survivor.

Children’s Cancer Fund (CCF) was founded in 1982 by a coalition of parents whose children were receiving cancer therapy at Children’s Medical Center. The organizers have since been joined by community leaders, dedicated volunteers and health professionals in their fundraising efforts. CCF is one of the nation’s leading fundraising groups in supporting local research toward treatment and prevention of childhood cancers.

CCF relies on the dedication and expertise of several community leaders, including Roger and Marianne Staubach and Troy Aikman, to set the vision, direction and mission of the Children’s Cancer Fund.
