Not My Daughter … Find A Cure Now! To Hold Virtual Telethon
Riding the Wave to a Cure! With phones in hand, and the appeal of social media, Not My Daughter…find a cure now! will be calling on its supporters to raise funds and awareness as it continues in its mission to end breast cancer. Their characteristic blend of fun with a purpose will be on full display as the grassroots volunteer organization will hold The Not My Daughter…Find a Cure Now! Virtual Telethon on Monday, October 25, 2021 from 10:00AM – 6:00PM.
Since its inception a dozen years ago, connecting their mission with the community has been at the essence of this grassroots organization. Not My Daughter…find a cure now! is especially excited to welcome Broward Health as the premier sponsor this year. “The support of the community and our wonderful partners have strengthened our mission,” says Denyse Hostig, co-chair and founder. “We are grateful to Broward Health for helping us to make a difference.”
Over the years, Not My Daughter…find a cure now! has raised millions of dollars in the search for a cure. Always focused on the importance of their goal, the volunteer group continues to help fund cancer-research organizations including Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, PAP Corps: Champions for Cancer Research, and others, as well as providing resources and ancillary services through the Not My Daughter Healing Center at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at Plantation. NMD is always finding and funding new ways to connect their mission with the community.
How is this event different from all others?
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. As we ride the wave to find a cure together, Not My Daughter will bring a good old-fashioned telethon with a twist again. NMD committee and NMD Teens will be reaching out by phone and live stream to build excitement for our common cause with a day of entertainment, guest speakers, and live social media posts that will support our sponsors.
The volunteer run group has solidified its place in the community, growing in numbers and establishing a Teen Advisory Group. “Not My Daughter…find a cure now! is about caring, community, and a future without breast cancer. Our teens are our call to action, and their support inspires us to ride the wave together and keep fighting for a cure,” says co-chairwoman and co-founder Jody Sternfield.
Not My Daughter…find a cure now! Virtual Telethon will take place on Monday, October 25th from 10am to 6pm. To view our live telethon feeds be sure to like our Not My Daughter Find A Cure Now Facebook page. Anyone interested in being a sponsor or making a donation please visit www.notmydaughter.org
