In Memory of our Friend




From our friend Gail,

"I have been blessed to be able to raise money to help with this effort.  My friends, clients and employer are amazingly supportive.  This will most likely be my last year at the top as I will retire June 2015.  Thanks to everyone for their support."


Gail Duke was a nine-year breast cancer survivor and for the eighth time, a member of the Pink Honor Roll for the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen®.   She has been one of our top fundraisers for over 6 years. 


Gail raised over over $200,000 in her committment to Susan G. Komen.  The driving force behind her fundraising efforts came from her desire to find a cure for the disease that took the life of her mother. Gail had been a Race participant for several years, but since starting down the path with her own fight against breast cancer, it become so personal for her. 


Gail was a Director for BKD LLP and a Certified Public Accountant. BKD, LLP honors the life of Gail H. Duke with a $25,000 gift to Susan G. Komen Houston™ to continue in Gail’s work to help save lives in the Houston area and end breast cancer forever. 

You will be missed.
