Friends and Family,
[Jan 21] Hello and Happy New Year! I’m sitting at home staring out at a cold, windblown lake. The dogs won’t go out. They just rotate around the house chasing the warm sunny spots. Makes me want to take a nap. But no! I’m going to take this opportunity to announce the annual launch of my support for the 2020 Race for Hope – DC. Since first taking on my battle with a brain tumor I’ve championed a team for the race, a 5K course in the nation's capital. It’s a fun and inspiring way to join forces in the fight against brain tumors by raising funds for research. It is one of the largest fundraisers in the country benefiting the brain tumor community and the proceeds support the National Brain Tumor Society.
I am doing well. I get my checkups every 4 months, and everything remains stable. Thankfully, it’s hard to recall just how dark things looked for me back in ’09. I was fortunate. Not only to have the love and support of family and great friends, but to have connected with excellent hospitals and doctors who have both contributed to and gained from the research and advancements funded by organizations like the National Brain Tumor Society. Sure, my short-term memory suffers, but I’m enjoying life and having a good time. Ain’t no tumor gonna get me down.
This year’s Race for Hope is on Sunday, May 3rd, in Washington DC. Will you join us in this year’s walk? For those who are being introduced to this event for the first time, this is a well-established and successful charity run/walk that allows us to join forces in the fight against brain tumors by raising funds for research. Since 2010, I have sponsored a team in the event and every year we've had great participation - joining to walk, talk and catch up with each other while supporting a great cause. We've also had an incredible following of family and friends who have made generous donations on my behalf, helping achieve my fund-raising goals each year, and putting us among the top fund-raisers every year. You don't have to register to participate, and you don't have to participate to donate.
I hope you will consider joining us for this year's walk on May 3rd. We have a great group show up every year, and I look forward to spending time with them while we walk the city. If you can't join us, perhaps you'll consider contributing to this worthwhile cause and supporting us in spirit. Information for joining and/or donating to my team can be found herein.
Thank you again for all your thoughts, prayers and support. Please forward to anyone you think may be interested.
Love to all, Lisa
