A research team at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY is looking for African-American and Caucasian women living in, or willing to travel to, the Buffalo, New York, area who are postmenopausal, between the ages of 45 and 75 and have never had any type of cancer (except skin cancer) to participate in a study that is using flaxseed to look at the connections between race, genes, hormones, and breast cancer risk.
The Celebrity Bartender Night at Pican Restaurant to benefit Friends of Faith was a great success! Below are a couple of photos from the event, which was held on June 30th:

A big thanks to Nellie's Restaurant for holding a fabulous community event to benefit Friends of Faith on February 25th. Lots of people came to enjoy Nellie's delicious soul food, to hear some soul-stirring music and several lucky people walked away with great raffle prizes.
