Letter from the President
Dear Royal Dames and Supporters,
It is truly a privilege to be associated with such a talented group of Royal Dames and supporters who work so diligently and tirelessly to provide research dollars for cancer research at Rumbaugh Goodwin Institute at Nova Southeastern University. I am both honored and humbled to be your president especially during this exciting time! Through the Royal Dames’ efforts to provide funds, Rumbaugh Goodwin Institute was approved for a federal patent, on January 25, 2011, for a drug that is expected to work on breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancers. The Royal Dames have not swayed from their goal to provide funds for cancer research. I salute you for your persevering commitment. This dream could not have become a reality without your support.
Our 43rd Annual Tiara Ball will be held at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, November 17, 2012. Ball Chair Manya Lowry and Co-Chair Carol Harrison have themed this year's event "Fire & Ice." The Tiara Ball is our main fundraiser of the year and your generous support is imperative to the goal of providing the needed funds to continue the research that RGI and NSU have done. We need the participation of everyone!
Again, thank you for your perseverance and support. I look forward to working and getting to know each one of you. Have a safe and pleasant summer.
