Friends of St. Jude (FOSJ) Miami, the young professionals group dedicated to raising awareness and funding for St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research HospitalÂ®, and chaired by Jeb Bush Jr., invites the South Florida community to the seventh annual International Dermatology â€œItâ€™s All About the Kidsâ€ event, presented by the AndrÃ©s Asion Foundation.
â€œWe are excited to host another successful event, to ensure children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases can receive the treatment and care they need,â€ said Jeb Bush Jr., chair of FOSJ. â€œThanks to our partners and South Floridaâ€™s ongoing support, Friends of St. Jude has raised more than $600,000 to help ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for their treatment, travel, housing or food.â€
The event will feature a tasting menu and cocktails, as well as music performances by The Culture Band and DJ Troubles. This yearâ€™s hosts include award-winning journalist and anchor of Univision Networkâ€™s news-magazine show Primer Impacto Pamela Silva Conde and recording artist Jencarlos Canela.
â€œI’ve had the pleasure to witness first-hand, the great work that St. Jude does for their patients and their families,” said Silvia Trinidad, from International Dermatology Research. “I am wholeheartedly committed to St. Jude and their tireless work in the advancements of cancer research and treatment for the children.”
â€œIn many cases, St. Jude is the last hope for children suffering from cancer, who have previously not responded well to standard treatments, because St. Jude is where doctors send their toughest cases as the hospital has the worldâ€™s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers”, said Andres Asion. â€œThey are at the forefront of developing new treatment options that are then shared freely with hospitals around the world.”
