Ladies Set Sail to Raise Money for a Cure

Upcoming Charity Event to benefit Breast Cancer Research

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Women of all ages and backgrounds are invited to join Ladies Sail for a Cure, a three-hour charity benefit sailing on February 7, 2009 to raise money for the Florida Breast Cancer Coalition Research Foundation (FBCCRF).

The benefit sail is the fifth charity sailing event organized by The sailing catamaran, Wild Hearts, will depart at 2:00 pm from Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale.

Serena Hoermann, the event's founder, shared that she was moved to arrange a charity sailing event to find a cure because of a good friend, Cynthia, who thankfully, is a survivor.

"Our sons had a play date," Hoermann said about her first meeting with Cynthia. "She and her family had recently relocated to South Florida for a new job. It was during that time she discovered the lump in her breast.

"Further medical problems led her to make the difficult decision to undergo a radical mastectomy followed by intense chemotherapy."

Two weeks following the surgery, Cynthia was quite weak, Hoermann noted. "Yet I could tell she was a strong woman."

A friendship developed between the two families, and now, seven years later, Hoermann said that "Cynthia remains cancer free. She regularly participates in fundraising and advocates a healthy lifestyle, self-exams and regular medical checkups."

Hoermann credits early detection and access to excellent healthcare for Cynthia's survival.

"Even so, she paid a high price. Achieving prevention and finding a cure would mean that others would be saved from enduring what she did."

Tickets for the charity sailing event are available on the web site: and must be purchased in advance. No sailing experience is required. Donations directly to the charity are also encouraged.

The $75 ticket price includes lunch, beer, wine, and soft drinks, as well as a charity donation to Florida Breast Cancer Coalition Research Foundation. Raffle prizes, auction items and goodie bags will be provided by local sponsors such as Seventh Street Wine Company and China Grill.

The FBCCRF is an independent 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization. It is dedicated to ending breast cancer through Advocacy, Education and Research.
