Texas Chapter Vision


For those of you all over Texas who are already members of SFA, and for those of you who are just now joining
, I'd like to get us all on the same page.

Until now, there was not an official Texas chapter, so SFA members who happened to reside in Texas held their own fundraisers to honor their loved ones. We've heard of some fundraising efforts around the state such as this one in memory of the beloved Sheri Eke, and I'm sure there are many others going on as well. We would like to support all who have been touched by Sarcoma here in the Lone Star State.

Our vision for the Texas chapter is to
have a unified effort in raising awareness and fundraising to help find a cure in our time. We have chosen to begin with raising money in memory of Sarah Chidgey Hughes. Once we reach this goal, our hope is to select another person to honor in a similar way. Texas is a very large state, so let's work together to make a difference!

We are in transition at the moment, but hopefully as we reach out to those across Texas we will combine forces and work together as a team. We have until February 2012 to reach our goal of a named research grant in memory of Sarah Chidgey Hughes.

If you would like to recommend someone to be the focus of our next fundraising effort or if you have any ideas on how we could improve our efforts in reaching out and unifying our goals, please contact us via email or by commenting on this post.

Together we can do great things!
