Board of County Commissioners 9/2/2008 1E1 Presented
REPORT: Commissioner Heyman noted the American Cancer Society had a video to promote the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” event. Ms. Lilliam Machado, Chair of the Miami-Dade Unit Board of Directors, American Cancer Society, expressed appreciation to the County for its support in 2007 for the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” event. She presented statistics regarding women being diagnosed with breast cancer and women dying from breast cancer. She pointed out the American Cancer Society provided services to fight breast cancer. Ms. Machado requested the County support the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” event on October 4, 2008. Following a video presentation of the late Ms. Debbie Curtain speaking before the Commission regarding her breast cancer treatment, Ms. Donna Lundy, Volunteer, American Cancer Society, asked the Commission to have a moment of silence to reflect on Ms. Curtain. Ms. Lundy requested the Commission continue supporting the American Cancer Society. Commissioner Heyman presented a resolution of sympathy to the Curtain family. Mr. Dan Curtain expressed appreciation for all the support Ms. Curtain received during her battle with breast cancer. Chairman Barreiro and Commissioners Sosa, Moss, Jordan, Sorenson, Rolle, and Souto, as well as County Manager George Burgess provided words of sympathy to the Curtain family and commended Ms. Curtain for her accomplishments. Commissioner Sosa noted she would donate $5,000 to the American Cancer Society – Miami-Dade Commission Team from the District 6 funds (see Report under Agenda Items 11B8 and 11B9, Legislative File Nos. 082568, 082569).
