CAF Launches “Council of Heroes” Campaign

Septembr 20, 2103 – Dear Friends,

On this, the 59th anniversary of our founding, the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation is proud to announce the launch of our “Council of Heroes” initiative.

This new investment campaign is designed to move the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation to a new level of activity and achievement, thus enabling us to more aggressively pursue our goal to minimize complications and increase patient longevity while working to perfect stem cell and gene therapy curative approaches.

We believe that every great cause and goal calls forth the heroes it requires. While we are eternally grateful for the ongoing support we receive from many donors, our patients need us to reach even greater heights in fundraising if we are to perfect a cure for this disorder.

The Council of Heroes campaign is designed to significantly expand the Foundation’s impact on the future health of thalassemia patients.

We cannot do this alone. In the weeks ahead, we will reach out for help from exceptional men and women who have vision, experience, willpower and the ability to make a difference in our ongoing battle against this disease.

This announcement of the Council of Heroes campaign on today, September 20, has symbolic power: the date marks the 59th anniversary of the founding of the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation and launches the one-year countdown to the our landmark 60th anniversary in 2014.

The Council of Heroes will be on the front line in helping secure the resources the Foundation desperately needs to achieve a cure and improve the lives of all those affected by thalassemia.
