VEPS: Reason to Smile
Anne and John Mendelsohn, M.D., center, join former first lady Barbara Bush and longtime MD Anderson supporter Helen Vietor at the Volunteer Endowment for Patient Support (VEPS) luncheon at River Oaks Country Club in Houston. Vietor’s husband, George, was an MD Anderson patient and volunteer who founded VEPS, hoping to build the endowment to $1 million in 10 years. With that goal achieved in just nine years, the endowment currently stands at more than $2.7 million. Since 1992, VEPS has disbursed more than $1.6 million to fund patient-oriented programs and services at MD Anderson. Nancy B. Loeffler, chair of The University Cancer Foundation Board of Visitors, was keynote speaker at this year’s March luncheon.
