Ida Goeckel is at it again. For the eighth consecutive year, she’s brought together a power packed lineup of musicians in the Buffalo area to raise money for the Roswell Park Cancer Institute’s Breast Care and Resource Center.

Ms. Barbara Hillary, that amazing 79 year old powerhouse and cancer survivor, is actively raising funds to reach her next goal, the South Pole. Well it seems that some very important folks are recognizing what a special lady she is and are putting their money where their mouth is. Rolex has become one of her special sponsors. Way to go Barbara !
There’s power in purple. Last June, the Mission Possible Films team took to the road and landed in our nations capital to meet up with Anne Shimabukura for the first annual Pancreatic Cancer fundraising event ” PurpleStride “. We got a chance to film about 2000 cancer survivors and supporters walking down Pennsylvania Avenue to raise money and awareness in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. Well come to find out, they raised over $ 380,000.00 with that 5K event. Wow !
And finally from the Mission Possible Film studios, we’re on the road again to Sun Valley Idaho to meet up with Barbie McQueen, the widow of the legendary Steve McQueen. Steve’s life was cut short from Mesothelioma, the subject of our working project ” The Erionite Connection ” . She is a celebrated photographer in her own right, and has a new book out of photographs she took of Steve during their life together.
Well that’s it for now, and again thank you for taking the time to check in. Remember, take care of yourselves, and enjoy the beauty of life.
All the Best,
