The Friends of Jason Gould Foundation will hold its Fourth annual fundraiser for leukemia and lymphoma research on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at the St. Charles Moose in St. Charles Illinois.
Our mission is to raise money to support leukemia and lymphoma research in memory of Jason Gould who battled leukemia and a secondary viral related lymphoma after a bone marrow transplant. Our goal is to help bring cures so that others might survive these dreadful diseases.
Friends of Jason Gould Inc has chosen to raise funds to support the innovative work of a team of cancer researchers at The Ohio State University. One of these research scientists, Dr Rob Baiocchi has attended each of our previous fundraisers. He spoke about the importance of groups such as ours in raising money to support their efforts since funding in general has been cut dramatically in the last few years. He shared with us that with the addition a portion of our donations, he and his team were able to develop a new protocol for the treatment of the form of lymphoma that Jason developed. All of the patients treated were terminally ill and all responded to the new treatment and are cancer free!
We were elated to hear that our donations are being used by Dr Rob with such incredible results and that he personally oversees every dollar that we raise. He will once again be attending and speaking at Jason’s Hogfan Party on September 8th at the St. Charles Moose. He will also show us the video of the 36 year old Pediatrician from Indiana who was one of the patients who received the new treatment that we helped support. He is now back enjoying his life with his young family! He will personally thank all of us. Our effort is helping to save lives!
Jason’s Hogfan Party is an old fashioned pig roast with all the trimmings, a great homemade dessert table, music, our unique Hogwheel game, the Grand raffle with an Apple iPad, 32 inch HDTV, and more! We also have a great MC, a silent auction and great raffles!
We are asking if you would consider supporting us in our efforts by giving a donation in any amount or by donating a raffle/silent auction item? We are now accepting pledges for items including much needed sports tickets, travel, and anything you are willing to donate!
