faces2012: Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation's First National Conference
<drumroll> Here’s a first for Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation; we are now blogging!
And right around the corner, another first – a national conference, faces2012, October 26-28, 2012 in Erie, Pa.
Why name our conference faces2012?
“Faces” are what we are here for… it’s about YOU: the doctors, researchers, donors, followers, cancer patients, care givers, survivors, and it’s about the ones that are left behind. YOU are the people that fuel the work that we do every day. YOU are the faces!
What will happen at faces2012, and why is it important to bring everybody together?
The first goal of faces2012 is to expound upon our mission statement. The Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment is why Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation was formed; we want to make our research the focus of the weekend. Successful outcomes are building momentum and we are excited that our lead researchers, all three of them, will be in Erie to share why their research of the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment is “the world’s most promising cancer research!”
Secondly we want to create the national and global awareness of the research so that it can be funded.
In order for our followers to help us create awareness, they need to know what to say. We want you to understand the message that needs to be communicated. We are going to hold workshops about what to communicate with your local media outlets, politicians and best friends as well as how to share it on Facebook and other social media platforms.
Creating awareness will, in turn then, help us with the third part of our mission: fund the research. That is not cheap. Annually, it takes nearly $2.5 million to make our research possible. You may not think you are a fundraiser but if you can put on a birthday party, then you can put on a fundraiser for Kanzius. It is simple and we will have experts from the industry, and more importantly, experts associated with the Kanzius Foundation, that have done fundraisers for us and will share their fundraising “what-to-do’s” and “what-not-to-do’s” to ensure that your fundraiser will run smoothly and successfully.
Boy, do we have parties planned! We want you to be a part of the festivities beginning with a Friday night reception for the introduction of all the researchers. It will be an informal setting where you can get your picture taken and ask questions. These researchers are making history…you won’t want to miss this! This reception takes place on Friday night, October 26th from 6-8 o’clock.
All day Saturday, October 27th, we have general and plenary sessions and breakout workshops planned. Each attendee will be able to gain vital information on the research, awareness and fundraising. A comprehensive listing of all of the general sessions and workshops is available at www.faces2012.org.
Our general, plenary sessions on Saturday, at both nine o’clock in the morning and at noon will feature high profile, national speakers. Tying together “We are the Faces” – we will introduce the theme, and then will wrap it up on Saturday morning as we close out with “Don’t Stop Believing.” We are excited about sharing the Kanzius message so you walk away empowered to make this “better way” of treating cancer come to fruition.
Saturday evening, you don’t want to miss our closing celebration, “Passport to Erie, the City Where it All Began.” Local restaurateurs will gather together and present delicious tastings at their individual food stations around the room, giving you an opportunity to graze the streets of Erie to celebrate where the Kanzius dream began. Local musicians will entertain attendees into the night.
faces2012 is a power-packed, educational and inspiring three day conference. The registration fee is only $175 but if you act by Monday, September 10th, you can receive $25 off the registration. That price includes entrance into all of the sessions, workshops, meals and receptions/celebrations.
We want to see you there! Don’t miss out on this first time, national opportunity as the faces of Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation gather together!
