Members of Nosotros Raise $2000
(Houma, La.) Members of Nosotros (Spanish for we or us) – a support group for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers – hosted an inaugural fundraiser to benefit Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC. The group held a very successful karaoke night and jambalaya dinner Saturday, April 5, raising $2,000. A check was presented at the Center on May 1 at 1 p.m.
“We have a wonderfully caring group,” said support group participant and wife of cancer survivor, Libbi Moore. “We wanted to do something that would directly help those in our community dealing with this disease.”
