DECIDING TO ACT... MILES PERRET CANCER SERVICES' MISSION


The mission of Miles Perret Cancer Services is to help families fight, survive, and live with cancer. Our mission is founded on the principle that life is sacred, and quality of life should not be forgotten or neglected, particularly when battling cancer. Many cancer patients and their families need the organized and deliberate support of a cancer services center invested in their welfare and healing. They need Miles Perret Cancer Services.


ABOUT MPCS


When Miles was diagnosed in 1995, his family determined right away that Miles would have as normal and carefree a life as possible. Their journey with him provided firsthand experience of the daily challenges of fighting cancer. In 1996, Miles succumbed to a brain tumor (gliioblastoma). A few years later, the Perret family started GAMES OF ACADIANA, a family oriented fundraising event, first held August 25, 2001. The amazing success of the first GAMES enabled the Miles Perret Center to open less than a year later.


The Miles Perret Center has grown over the past decade to become Miles Perret Cancer Services (MPCS), a comprehensive resource center helping those in Acadiana fight, survive, and live with cancer. Since opening June 27, 2002, MPCS has helped over 8,000 families in Acadiana.

GAMES OF ACADIANA is still the principle source of funding for Miles Perret Cancer Services though MPCS hosts other small events throughout the year. Additionally, MPCS accepts private donations, memorial gifts, and grants.


ABOUT CBCH... COMMITTED TO THE PEOPLE OF ACADIANA


Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel is proud to sponsor the Charity Runners team's participation in MPCS Triathlon as part of the commitment to the people of Acadiana.

Chitimacha Open

Join us March 21 through 24 for the Chitimacha Louisiana Open Golf Tournament at Le Triomphe. This annual event is one of the top stops on the tour each year. The mission of the Open is to bring professional golf to South Louisiana and raise funds to support charities throughout Acadiana.

 

One of the benefits of hosting this tournament is the huge amount of national publicity afforded to the Acadiana region. In addition since its incorporation, the Chitimacha Louisiana Open has donated over $3.75 million to various local charities.

This is the 19th year that both The Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana and Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel have made such a substantial contribution to this major fund raising event.
