Silent Auction to Support Cancer Forums
The Silent Auction, held Dec. 10, raised more than $1800 for the Foundation. Funds will be used to offset the cost of Cancer Forums and operations. The Foundation is grateful to all who participated, and especially to Auction Chair, Gale Scavone, as well as Susan Nolte, President.

The group sponsored the Anne Arundel Cancer Forum on March 6, 2010. The event, attended by approximately 115 people, provided reliable information on various types of cancer, as well as treatment options. Most of the presenters were practicing oncologists. The event, held at the Severna Park Elks Lodge, was FREE and open to the public. There were also exhibitors from the local cancer care community. The luncheon speaker was Gary Jobson, world-renowned sailor and cancer survivor.
