Raising awareness

Published 10:17 am Saturday, July 2, 2016

Sherry Paschal, Tina Prevost, Sarah Sampson Merrill and Norma Sampson recently completed the Avon 39, a 39-mile walk in Houston to end breast cancer. Each one raised a minimum of $1,800 to participate in the walk that funds breast cancer research, awareness and education, as well as provides assistance for families currently battling the disease. Avon is a generous supporter of the Julie Rogers “Gift of Life” Program, which will host its annual 5K Ribbon Run Color Rush presented by the Byrd Law Firm in loving memory of Julie Richardson Procter and sponsored by H-E-B and Jason’s Deli on Saturday, October 1 to raise awareness and funding for breast, ovarian and other gynecological cancers.
