MARTINA MCBRIDE FANS RAISE OVER $40,000 FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH
(Nashville, Tennessee…) – Superstar singer/songwriter Martina McBride and her nationwide volunteer group, Team Martina, recently awarded the “Martina McBride Breast Cancer Research Grant” in the amount of $40,550.00 to Nashville’s Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, it was announced this week. The grant was given through T.J. Martell Foundation, the music industry’s largest charity that funds leukemia, cancer, and AIDS research.
The
funds will be used to assist triple negative breast cancer research at
Vanderbilt. Team Martina member Taira Baughman lost her battle this year
with this same type of breast cancer. She appeared in Martina’s video
for the song “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” in 2011.
“I
am so proud of this amazing team of volunteers,” said Martina. “They
are truly making the world a better place with their fundraising efforts
and I’m honored they are doing it in my name. We give this grant in
honor of our friend and team mate Taira Baughman who was an inspiration
to so many. She dedicated her life to her family and to helping others
and this grant will undoubtedly touch the lives of countless women.”
Team Martina, a
nationwide and global community service group of country music fans
dedicated to making the world a better place through volunteerism,
held various fundraisers around the country starting in the fall of
2012 and culminating with a sound check party with Martina in
Morgantown, WV. Since 2011, the group has raised more than $100,000 for various causes.
