On behalf of the Gibbs Regional Cancer Center of Spartanburg,
the Center for Colon Cancer Research at the University of South
Carolina, and the Betty Ann Moore Colon Cancer Awareness Fund,
we thank you for your support of the first annual “Unmasking
Masquerade Ball" that took place this past February.
We are delighted with the success of this year's event and are
happy to announce that the evening raised over $30,000
for education, awareness, screening, and research here in South
The evening jump-started March Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
activities. Across the state, survivors, advocates, and community
programs have focused their efforts on decreasing colorectal cancer
incidence and mortality. Through public and professional education
and awareness, screening, and research, we are changing the impact
of this disease in South Carolina today. People are learning that
colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable, and BEATABLE!
We continue to receive tremendous support and we are very appreciative
to everyone involved.
