Frogs for the Cure
Texas Christian University supports breast cancer research and education with raising money and awareness through Frogs for the Cure. Working directly with Komen for the Cure, Frogs for the Cure offers many opportunities for student, faculty, staff, and community involvement related to breast cancer awareness.
Hosting Dr. Siegel through Komen's Lynn Lectures is one of the many events TCU and Frogs for the Cure will provide. The Lynn Lectures were developed to honor Lynn Tucker Grogan, who passed from breast cancer. Grogan valued the importance of integrative medicine and mindfulness in the promotion of healing, living fully in the present moment and cultivating well-being even when the disease cannot be cured.
The Lynn Lectures at TCU will be presented in honor of Joan Katz and Rozanne Rosenthal, founders of the Greater Fort Worth affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Ms. Katz is a two-time breast cancer survivor who continues to live life to the fullest while still giving back to her community. Mrs. Rosenthal founded the Greater Fort Worth affiliate as a way to honor her close friend and support other women diagnosed with breast cancer. Both women are philanthropists committed to educating and advocating health in the community.
The event is sponsored by Texas Christian University, Frogs for the Cure, the Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences, TCU's Psychology Department, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
