TEX-MEX 2022 HIGHLIGHTS
2022 was an exciting year for the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, as we moved our Tex-Mex Fiesta fundraising event to Texas for the first time. Farrah was a Texas girl, so celebrating her in her home state was very special to us.
The Tex-Mex beneficiaries are with Stand Up to Cancer and the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge, which provides a safe, peaceful place for patients and their caregivers to stay during treatment at any local center.
Currently, the Foundation is funding HPV-related head and neck cancer research conducted by our scientific partner, Stand Up To Cancer. The biennial Tex-Mex Fiesta was first held in 2015, and has since raised over $3 million.
Ryan O’Neal was acknowledged for his continued support of the FFF. His son Patrick O’Neal accepted the award and read a moving speech written by Ryan, who could not attend.
