FTTF board sends out a THANK YOU to anyone who may have inadvertently missed!

It is FTTF mission to continue to serve patients "fighting" breast or gyn cancers here in Galveston County. Over just this past month we have supported 2 new patients. It is a true honor to support them and all who may come in the future. Here are a few pics from the event.

Please stay tuned......for next years date!
