About the event
The Crush Colon Cancer Fund has been established by the Mulrenan, Holzman, Brandano, Miller, Haggerty and McDonough families that will specifically direct funds to colon cancer medical advances being developed at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DCFI). Recently, our brother, Michael Mulrenan, has been diagnosed with colon cancer and is in the middle of a fight to beat this terrible disease. He is being treated at DFCI while his faith and the prayers and support, of what may be thousands of people, are engaged in this battle with Michael. While the work we support at DFCI may or may not be a part of Michael’s battle, the founding families have a long history with cancer, and decided it was time to engage directly in the fight against cancer with the aim of saving the lives of patients and help lessen the devastating effect it can have on families.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $100,000 and our first fundraiser will be at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The cost of the event is 100% funded which means your entire contribution will go to the fund, there is no offset for expenses. We request a minimum of a $100 donation from each attendee. Dinner will be provided, along with a cash bar, music and dancing. There will be drawings, auctions and other fun activities during the evening. Space for this first fundraising event will be very limited, so please register as soon as possible. Your contribution is tax deductible, and a tax receipt will be provided to you from DFCI.
All proceeds from The Crush Colon Cancer Fund will go directly to the Marios Giannakis, MD Lab at DCFI. The Lab is specifically focused on colon cancer research and has already developed an immunotherapy for colon cancer that is in clinical trials. Our funds will enable this trial and research to advance and has the potential to have a profound impact on the future of patients and their families.
Please join us for a fun night and in the fight to save patients’ lives.
