On November 10th at 8:30 a.m., walk participants will take the time to commemorate those affected by Leiomyosarcoma (LMS), a rare sarcoma cancer. This disease affects the smooth muscles of the body. At one time this disease was deemed as one that only affected middle aged individuals, but the reports of younger individuals affected by the disease continue to increase. Although this disease occurs in four of every million cancer cases, the devastation from its impact can be felt by a countless number of love ones.
A portion of the proceeds earned from the $25 registration fee will go towards Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) research. The walk will consist of supporters cohesively strolling in confidence that this disease can and will be conquered. In addition to the walk displaying a hope-filled atmosphere, it will also consist of light hope-inspired music, refreshments and the attendance of a host of companies, organizations and political leaders proactively embracing the cause.
Registration will also be available at Cocktails for a Cure, the Pre-Walk cocktail mixer on November 3rd from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Black Finn Grille. Black Finn Grille is settled in the heart of Midtown Houston. This restaurant’s strong polished woods and modish decorum evokes a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the social enthusiast. To further heat up their social appeal, this new hot spot will be creating two specialty cocktails and donating $1 per drinks ordered back to the Cynthia Solomon Holmes Foundation. To kick off this already impressive night, one of KHOU Channel 11’s finest, Digital Media Producer, Nakia Cooper will host this hope-inspired event.
