NANCY OWENS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION HOSTS JOAN LUNDEN

The Nancy Owens Memorial Foundation hosted its 16th Annual Luncheon with celebrity guest speaker, Joan Lunden at the Hilton Americas – Houston.
Over 750 guests attended that included Ilona Carson who served as the Mistress of Ceremonies. Joan Lunden inspired the crowd as she shared the story of her battle against breast cancer and the transformative effect it has had on her life, as well as her work on Capitol Hill as an advocate for patients across the country.
“I once heard a quote that there are two great days in our life, the day we are born and the day we discover why,” said  Lunden. Proceeds from the luncheon benefit breast cancer research  and a donation of $105,000 were presented to Matthew Ellis, Ph.D. with the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine, Elizabeth Mittendorf, M.D., Ph.D. with the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center and Alessandro Grattoni, Ph.D. with Houston Methodist Research Institute.
