If you had an extra $57 in your pocket, what would you do with it? For Jack Bohn, a second-grader in Baltimore, the answer was easy.
Susie’s Cause set out in 2016 with a far-sweeping, ambitious goal: to provide colon cancer education across the country in the underserved communities—in which colon cancer diagnoses and deaths occur at an alarmingly high rate—of 10 major cities. We wanted our visits to these communities to follow the model of our annual Baltimore Health Festival, which we put on for the first time in 2014: a free day of overall health education, with a particular focus on colon cancer screening and prevention, along with entertainment, fun, and food for the entire family.

Michigan Outreach Health Festival: Hail, Troy!
Susie’s Cause teamed up with Beaumont Health, Michigan’s largest health care system, to provide the local community of Troy, Mich., a free day of overall health education, with a particular emphasis on colorectal cancer screening and prevention, alongside live performances from area arts groups and entertainers, on Saturday, Aug. 6. Over 1100 people attended the festival which is specifically designed to provide colon cancer education to underserved communities, in which colon cancer diagnoses and deaths occur at an alarmingly high rate, with disproportionate screening suspected to be at least partly to blame. Thanks to sustaining sponsor Lilly Oncology for continuing support as we take these health festivals across the country.

Gala 2015
Eighth Annual Memories Gala 2016
Held once again at the magnificent Martin's Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, Md., this year's edition of our annual gala was a rousing success! The food of the Grand Global Gourmet Safari was impressively displayed and delicious, the Palovations electrified the crowd, and everyone in attendance had a fantastic time. Thanks to all who donated items for our silent auction, our enthusiastic volunteers, our generous sponsors and our perennially gracious host Marty Resnick, whose staff was professional and supportive, as always. We hope to see everyone again next year!
Baltimore Health Festival - 2016
By all accounts it was the most successful Health Festival yet.

Thanks to our amazing sponsors Lilly Oncology, Bon Secours Hospital, ABC2, CareFirst, M&T Bank, Mondawmin Mall and Genentech for their hard work in making the Festival a succcess.
