Jim & Silvia Kyrios Donate $25,000!

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

As we approach the festivities celebrating our 20th year of fundraising for vital, high-risk breast cancer research at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, we are seeing an overwhelming response to our efforts to cure breast cancer.

Thanks to Jim and Silvia Kyrios, long-time supporters of the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund, we are that much closer to our goal. The Kyrios family just donated $25,000!

For those not familiar with our organization, we are an all-volunteer community of family, friends and colleagues who have been working to fund targeted breast cancer research for 20 years. We have one caveat to our fundraising: 100% of the money we raise has to go directly to research. We do not take one penny off the top for our fundraising, social networking or administrative purposes. That means, when you donate a dollar to the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund $1 goes to research.

Thanks to the Kyrios family, we are now $25,000 closer to a cure!

Please join us Friday, October 16th to celebrate our 20th Anniversary Benefit! Tickets are $250. For more information about our fund or our 20th Anniversary Benefit, contact Missy Cohen-Fyffe at 603-635-9568.
