Dear Liza,

Thank you for making our Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon such a meaningful event for all of the 240 people in attendance. Your remarks to our gathering of supporters and early detection advocates were wonderful. I have had numerous follow-up conversations with attendees who were so enriched by your speech. Thank you so much for reaching our audience with your thoughtful remarks.

My hope is that our annual luncheon will help save lives through the early detection of breast cancer. That hope could be carried out by someone who attended the luncheon and uses the early detection information to encourage a friend to be screened, or it could be through the funds raised that day which support our free mammography screening for women without health insurance. Your involvement in our Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon touched the lives of women and their families in Central Virginia and beyond. I am most appreciative of your support.

I hope you will return to Richmond very soon.

Sincerely,

Ellen Shaw de Paredes, M.D., FACR

Founder & Director
