National Breast Cancer Foundation: “NBCF’s mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival. NBCF corporate office is in Frisco, Texas and we continue to support their efforts and dedicate the Slipstream October edition to breast cancer awareness.
American Heart Association: “Our Lifesaving History before the American Heart Association existed, people with heart disease were thought to be doomed to complete bed rest — or destined to imminent death. On June 10, 1924, they met in Chicago to form the American Heart Association — believing that scientific research could lead the way to better treatment, prevention and ultimately a cure. Since then, the AHA has grown rapidly in size and influence — nationally and internationally — into an organization of more than 33 million volunteers and supporters dedicated to improving heart health and reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke”. PCA Mavericks club continue to be part of supporting AHA through fund raising efforts.
