The ARD Foundation’s President, Ms. Paola Diniz, created the foundation having in mind the millions of patients that suffer from cancer all over the world. Preventing and treating cancer still poses a major challenge and affects not only patients but also friends and family. Ms. Diniz herself experienced the painful loss of family members to this disease and decided to use all the means available to tirelessly fight cancer. Towards this goal, we would like to create not only a night of awareness for the challenges of preventing and treating cancer but also a movement of support and hope for those affected by this disease. Ms. Paola Diniz strongly believes that together we can help scientists to achieve a common goal: the prevention and treatment of cancer.
During the night, auctions of travel, paintings and jewelry will be held, which, along with the ticket and table sales, are expected to raise around US$ 400.000. All money will be reverted to the MD Anderson Cancer Center. Located in Houston, the Institute is the world leader in genomic research, one of the fastest growing therapies as a solution to fight cancer.
All proceeds from the event will go to MD Anderson Hospital.
