In 2015, The FFF started the first biennial Tex-Mex Fiesta in Los Angeles. This laid-back gala, in the spirit of Farrah’s Texas roots, raises money for HPV cancer research.
Our Tex-Mex fundraising event is a fun night under the stars with A-list talent, auction items and more. Guests will also enjoy a delicious Tex-Mex dinner with Margaritas and Mariachis.
Most importantly, the night allows us to remember Farrah, continue her mission of fundraising for HPV cancer research, and recognize all those who have helped us do so.
Farrah asked in her cancer documentary: “Why isn’t there more research on certain types of cancer?”
We are proud to have partnered with Stand Up To Cancer to create an HPV Translational Research Team to address that question. Although we have made strides since Farrah’s passing, we still have so much to conquer. HPV throat cancer in men has already surpassed cervical cancer diagnoses in women. This is why we started our second scientific collaboration with SU2C to study HPV-related Head and Neck cancers.
HPV now affects more men than women. It is estimated that 80% of the population living a normal life will contract HPV at some point in their life. We encourage people to know the facts and options for prevention.
HPV is everyone’s concern.
