Girl Scout Silver Award Lung Cancer Awareness support

Recommended Posts

My girlscout troop is currently working on their silver award which is promoting lung cancer awareness in the community through a "Daddy"/daughter dance. Their audience is young girls in our community. Does anyone have any suggestions where we can locate fun promotional items (bracelets, etc)that are either very inexpensive or could be donated.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Katie,

I'm located in Cypress TX - outskirts of Houston. My father recently passed from lung cancer and I'm proud that my daughter and troop want to stop their younger friends from going down a dangerous path.

We do not have a lot of money to get started, so I'll pass them any info you can give us.

Thanks so much!

Michelle

I'll PM you. You are not close to me (I'm in Dallas/Ft.Worth area) , but perhaps I can get some things to you in the mail.

I lost my dad to LC too. I'm proud of your daughter!

I'm not sure if this is close to what you are thinking - but I think if you contact some of the drug companies that make lung cancer drugs, they may have some things they could send you. To name a few:

Alimta = Eli Lilly http://www.lilly.com/

Tarceva = OSI/Genetech http://www.gene.com/gene/index.jsp http://www.osip.com/

Carboplatin is generic but the original drug is by BMS http://www.bms.com/landing/data/index.html

Taxol - BMS also makes that

Years ago I got a lot of things from drug companies for 'goody bags' for a relay for life event. Just a thought.

Katie,

You helped me greatly when I first got on this site -I'm in Houston and we talked about possible bracelets or something fun for the little girls, I use to live in Keller. My in-laws are in colleyville - so if you have phamplets or anything they could get them for me. I'm sorry I haven't gotten back with you. I can't find your personal email and like I said, we were so overwhelmed with dance money & specifics, we dropped the ball on the important stuff. Hope you remember me! Sorry for not staying on top of things
