FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Love, Hope & Pizza Raises Over $1 Million for National Breast Cancer Foundation and Brings Services to Moffitt Cancer Center
Hungry Howie’s Celebrates Survivors and Early Detection Education
TAMPA, Florida – September 23, 2014 – Love, Hope & Pizza has raised well over $1 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) over the past five years. “Hungry Howie’s has put their heart and soul into Love, Hope & Pizza,” said NBCF Founder & CEO Janelle Hail. “The funds have helped provide tens of thousands of free early detection services for women in need in all 50 states. Now, we’re proud to announce it has made possible a new partnership with Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa Bay.”
The NBCF mission is to save lives through early detection and provide mammograms for those in need. Through Love, Hope & Pizza, NBCF is able to expand services to Tampa Bay making it possible for more women to receive life-saving services. “Early detection saved my life,” said Andrea Adair, two-time breast cancer survivor and Hungry Howie’s associate. “Cancer makes you think about how much time you have left. Don’t dream it’s over. Don’t you dare! Thanks to Hungry Howie’s customers and employees, we are able to educate and help more women.” Adair volunteers extensively supporting breast cancer and childhood cancer causes.
When breast cancer is detected early, the survival rate is 98%, but many women don’t have an early detection plan. “What would life be like without the survivors? They are our mothers, daughters, community leaders and advocates who help others. Their lives are our inspiration. They are the reason we support NBCF and work with hospital and media partners to educate the community about breast cancer and NBCF services,” said Jennifer Hearn, President of HH Pizza Inc..
Throughout October, supporters may purchase Love, Hope & Pizza wristbands with all proceeds going to NBCF. Hungry Howie’s large pizzas will be served in pink boxes, and for every story shared on Facebook, new Facebook fan, picture tagged #LOVEHOPEPIZZA and large pizza purchased, Hungry Howie’s will donate to NBCF with a 2014 fundraising goal of $300,000.
