In Memory of Ethel Precht
Ethel Mae LeBleu Precht 1937 - 2017
Ethel started a breast cancer walk in 2004 to assist local breast cancer survivors in Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes. Thanks to tremendous local support, in 2008, she started a non profit organization named The Ethel Precht HOPE Breast Cancer Foundation, Incorporated. The impact of having breast cancer at age 50 and surviving it changed her life and our community forever.
The Foundation was formed in 2008 with the sole mission of providing 100% of proceeds directly to individuals in the Calcasieu and Cameron Parishes who are going through breast cancer treatment.
