We also provided assistance to the incredible team at the UCLA Stem Cell Transplant Department . Because of your generosity, we were able to send several members of the transplant team to the International Bone Marrow Transplantation conference. The conference addressed both advancements in stem cell research and clinical applications, with some of the most globally-respected doctors, researchers, and medical staff in attendance. Such continued education helps UCLA remain one of the finest stem-cell transplant centers in the world which, in turn, improves patients’ overall treatment and experience.
Finally, we proudly worked with another non-profit, First Descents, an organization that offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure. The experience is designed to empower the participants to defy their cancer, reclaim their lives, and connect with others doing the same. With your help, we were able to send two of our previous Warriors of the Month (and local southern California residents), Viridiana Hernandez and Sarah Abdelhamid, on full, weeklong outdoor adventures. Viridiana already enjoyed an incredible experience, while Sarah is anxiously looking forward to her trip in July.
We greatly appreciate your support of Greener Pastures, and are committed to providing 100% transparency as to “where the green goes.” As you can see, in 2013, 69% of every dollar was used to directly help those battling cancer!
ALL of these programs were made possible by your generosity. We understand there are many worthy charities and causes to choose from, and are extremely grateful for your ongoing support of Greener Pastures. Thank you in advance for your continued support as we endeavor to help even more people in 2014!
