Nichole's Cord Foundation Launches Local Chapter with it's First Ever Benefit

On September 29th, 2007 from 3 pm to 7 pm, Nichole's Cord Foundation, A Chapter of Malia's Cord Foundation, INC. will host its first ever benefit to celebrate the launch of this local charity at The Public House in Philadelphia, 1880 Arch Street. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 and at the door for $30. Ticket price includes complimentary domestic drafts and selected appetizers. In addition, The Public House will donate 10% of all revenue made during the benefit to Nichole's Cord Foundation. A silent auction will also be held.

Nichole's Cord Foundation supports research of spinal cord tumors (SCTs) including astrocytomas and glioblastomas. This organization is dedicated to raising money to find a "cure for others through research and development." For more information on this foundation, visit www.cordfoundation.org.

This local chapter is founded in honor of Nichole, a resident of Churchville, PA, who lost a two year battle with glioblastoma in April 2005. Throughout Nichole’s fight she endured rigorous chemotherapy, experienced loss of function in her legs and arms, and confusion brought on through seizures that resulted from an aggressive radiation treatment.
 
Yet through it all Nichole remained positive and hopeful and never relented to the disease. She even returned to school after missing her first semester of senior year, to double her course-load and graduate with her classmates. Today, Nichole’s battle serves as an example of perseverance and hopefulness to all who have heard her story.
 
On behalf of all those battling spinal cord tumors, we ask you to join our fight to find a cure. To attend this event or to make a donation please contact Marie Crane, Vice-President of Nichole's Cord Foundation, at nicholescord@gmail.com.
 
We are extremely grateful for your support which could very well make the difference of a lifetime.
