Scott Carter Foundation Big Show! and Golf Tournament

Jinu and I were privileged to attend and participate in the Scott Carter Foundation fundraiser events this weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  This is an all-volunteer driven two part event, the Big Show dinner and auction, and the Indian Springs Golf Tournament.  It was my pleasure to meet the numerous proactive benefactors of the SCF in Tulsa, including some special parents of childhood cancer survivors including Amy White, a tireless advocate of families in her role as Pediatric Oncology Coordinator of the Oklahoma Family Network.  In its 17th year, this event exemplifies the commitment of a Scott's Family, and his community, to honor his memory by building a stronger foundation of research in childhood cancers. We are grateful that Jinu could be the 2009/2010 Scott Carter Fellow at OHSU.
