VEPS Luncheon

Volunteer Voice - Spring 2011

Show your MD Anderson spirit ...

 It’s easy to be a fan of 
MD Anderson Cancer Center!

This year, Volunteer Services was fortunate to have Nancy Loeffler, an 
MD Anderson patient and chair of The University Cancer Foundation Board of Visitors, as the speaker for the annual Volunteer Endowment for Patient Support (VEPS) Luncheon on March 23.

As Loeffler says in an article written for the Development Office publication, Promise, her commitment to MD Anderson is twofold.

On one hand, she chairs the institution’s Board of Visitors, and finds it a pleasure and an honor to lead this dedicated, energized group, while targeting a crucial mission.

Then, as an MD Anderson patient, she is committed on a more personal level. She finds that her journey has been made easier through those who support the cutting-edge research at MD Anderson. Loeffler expresses deep gratitude for the dedication she sees at the institution, and believes that she is living proof that 
MD Anderson is Making Cancer History.®

The VEPS Luncheon, which was chaired by Nancy Moncrief and Judy and Charles Tate, was held at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston with Frost Bank as the presenting sponsor.
