Those in attendance spoke candidly about how cancer has impacted their lives. While on the red carpet, David Foster referenced his sister who is a cancer survivor and stated, “We all must be vigilant, that’s just the best reason I’m here, but I’m here for not just my family --for every family.” Carly Hughes spoke about the many members of her family who have been affected by breast cancer and expressed her gratitude to the BCRF.
The BCRF has been a key player in cancer research, treatments and diagnosis over the years, and since its founding date, mortalities for the cause have declined by approximately forty percent.
