Helen’s Angels – a local non-profit organization, which provides support and assistance to individuals and families throughout the region who have been impacted by and/or are recovering from breast cancer, hosted their annual Tinis for Tatas event at the Vue on 50 in Philadelphia. The event featured a live auction, basket raffles, delicious cocktails, and fabulous food. At the event, Missy Quinn, President and Founder of Helen’s Angels, presented Robert Somer, MD, Head of the Division of Hematology/Medical Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, with a check for $25K to help provide direct support for MD Anderson at Cooper patients with breast cancer who may need financial assistance to help defray the costs associated with their diagnosis and treatment including co-pays, transportation to and from doctors’ appointments and treatments, and other support services such as house cleaning, child care, meals, wigs and counseling.
