Calling all Quaranqueens! This year Not My Daughter…find a cure now! will be hitting the phone lines and social media to raise money virtually as it continues in its fight against breast cancer. This is the eleventh year this volunteer organization has rallied together to raise awareness and lift spirits. The volunteer group is continuing to put forward their mission to help fund cancer research and to bring ancillary services to those undergoing treatment. Not My Daughter has raised millions of dollars since its inception and is continuing to fight for a cure. We invite you participate in The Not My Daughter…Find a Cure Now! Virtual Telethon on Monday, October 26, 2019 from 10:00AM – 6:00PM. Proceeds benefit Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, PAP Corps: Champions for Cancer Research, and other cancer research –based organizations, as well as the Not My Daughter Healing Center at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at Plantation.
A Parkland/Coral Springs tradition Not My Daughter…find a cure now! is known for its ability to bring together generations for a common purpose. This year the group had to think out of the box to come up with a way to continue their important mission. The result is a good old-fashioned telethon with a twist; our children and the Quaranqueens will be reaching out by phone and live stream to the community to bring you a day of entertainment, along with guest speakers and live social media posts that will support our sponsors.
“We are so honored and motivated by the outpouring of support for Not My Daughter…find a cure now! This virtual event is an opportunity for our community to come together in a fun, innovative way while social distancing to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. The future depends on our action, and Not My Daughter…find a cure now! is motivated to support our community and help prevent future generations from cancer,” says Denyse Hostig, founder and co-chairwoman.
The volunteer run group has solidified its place in the community, growing in numbers and establishing a Teen Advisory Group. “As in the past, we plan to involve our children, putting them to work on the phones and on social media. They are the heart of our community and the reason behind it all,” says co-founder Jody Sternfield.
The organization has also held tennis round robins, sold merchandise, and participated in community activities, in addition to the signature annual shopping boutique and luncheon event. “We’re hoping this year’s telethon amidst the Covid-19 pandemic will result in the community supporting our efforts as they have done in the past so that our daughters, sister, mothers, neighbors and friends will have a future that does not involve breast cancer,” says Hostig.
