We have added angel wings to the awareness ribbon to represent all the loved ones we have lost to
This new logo seems a fitting symbol of those who lost their fight to this cancer and are now watching over us.
The Goal: The Susan L. Bader Foundation of Hope, Inc, is a grass roots non-profit organization that works to give “HOPE” to patients and families dealing with Pancreatic Cancer. Our goal is to raise funding and attention to find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. The SLB Foundation of Hope embraces the urgent need to find effective treatments as well as early detection methods. Our focus is to support research efforts in the medical community, locally and on a national level.
Mission: The SLB Foundation of Hope will work to fund pancreatic cancer research through fundraising events, and personal and corporate donations. One hundred percent of our profits go directly to our foundation for research purposes. Our “HOPE” is to provide funding to researchers who are working to find a cure and/or early detection methods.
