2016 FLHW Evening at the Greenhouse

We are looking forward to our traditional events for 2016. The first being our Evening at the Greenhouse, which will once again be hosted by Suburban Lawn & Garden in Martin City. Our event will be Friday, May 13th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM. Spring is in the air…spending the evening at the greenhouse is a wonderful way to discover some lovely additions for the garden and prepare for the summer season. Hope to see you there!

Rich Lodes

It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of our beloved Board member Rich. In addition to being a founding board member of FLHW, he was a brother in law and best friend to David. He was a loyal and loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and friend to many.  His dedication and support for FLHW will be greatly missed. Rich lost his battle with metastatic melanoma on January 20th.

Our 2015 FLHW events will be dedicated to the memory of David and Rich.

FLHW Golf Tourney Update

Our 10th annual FLHW golf tourney is rapidly approaching. Please plan to come out and join us for a day of fun at Sycamore Ridge golf course in Spring Hill, KS. This is the pinnacle event of the year for us, recognizing the importance of early detection for PC and raising funds to find a way to the cure. The intensity of clinical studies is dramatically increasing, but can only continue if we stay focused and dedicated to supporting the research effort.

Please go to the events tab and register to play, or support this event through a donation or sponsorship.

The battle against prostate cancer is a very personal fight for FLHW. Thank you in advance for supporting our mission.

Once you choose Hope, anything is possible….

SU2C

Stand Up 2 Cancer (SU2C) is a collaborative research program that is dedicated to supporting and expediting the research necessary to find a cure for cancer. One of the clinical research studies supported by this program is dedicated to the study of prostate cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York. Collaborating the expertise, experience and potential of top researchers in their respective fields of cancer study is a powerful tool against our cancer battle.

While FLHW dedicates our focus on prostate cancer, we embrace and applaud all who battle The Big C. I encourage you to tune in to the live, hour long SU2C special tonight at 7:00 PM, presented on all the major networks, and to support this effort.

For reference, here are a couple of links for more information….

Welcome to Our New Website!

Welcome! We are pleased to present our new and improved FLHW website.

We have much of the same information that we maintained on our previous site, but now have an enhanced format which is hopefully, more intuitive and easy to navigate. Thanks to Ty and his team at DDM Global for partnering with us on this project!
