About 25 years ago the Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation was formed helping adults affected by cancer gain easier access to resources for support, information and research in their communities. Now, 25 years later in celebration of Minnie Pearl and the spirit of her generosity, The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation wants to hear from you. Those they have served: caregivers, survivors, and Minnie fans. Thus, the Minnie Moments campaign was formed. The Minnie Moments campaign honors the fact that this year overlaps the 25th anniversary of the organization with the 100th birthday of the comedienne. What great timing!
For those of you unfamiliar, the Minnie Pearl team focuses on removing barriers for people living with cancer diagnosis, provides one-on-one guidance and counseling. We are proud to work along side such philanthropic professionals. Make sure to check out the Minnie Moments site to read the stories of those impacted and share your story. Or keep up with everything on Minnie’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Also don’t forget to join the Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation at the upcoming Hats Across the Row on April 17th at 3pm on Music Row. The event is a campaign honoring Minnie’s legacy and the connection between Music Row and The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation. It is just another celebration of the organization’s 25 years of service.
