American Cancer Society’s
2017 Southeast Texas Cattle Barons Ball
Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in our community, Southeast Texas Cattle Barons Ball will now be held as a virtual event.
What is a virtual event? A virtual event gives Cattle Barons Ball participants the opportunity to continue to support the American Cancer Society via the internet. No actual event will be held but donors may give online in lieu of attending. All donations will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Hurricane Relief Fund.
Hurricane Harvey effected many of our friends, family and coworkers causing unprecedented devastation along the Gulf Coast. This includes cancer patients. The funds we collect through this effort will assist cancer patients who are having trouble accessing care due to the destruction and devastation of the hurricane. Donations will go above normal operational efforts and will be restricted to cancer patient support. Examples include helping evacuated patients find providers, temporary housing, and transportation including gas cards when traveling to appointments. Additionally, these funds will be used to connect patients and providers during the rebuilding process, as displaced patients and providers start to settle in at their new locales, or move back home.
While we are grateful for the many organizations and individuals lending assistance on the ground, we know that no one can navigate the complex cancer arena like the American Cancer Society. Rarely are we presented with such a critical need and one of such magnitude. Impacted cancer patients are now saddled with the unfathomable burden of not only dealing with their diagnosis, but possibly having lost everything they have.
Now more than ever, the American Cancer Society needs your help.

We want to thank you for your effort to provide support to cancer patients during this critical time, and I know you join us in keeping those affected by the storm in your thoughts. The American Cancer Society is committed to providing uninterrupted, immediate, and quality services to cancer patients impacted by the hurricane. If you or someone you know needs cancer-related assistance, please have them call at 1-800-227-2345.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
