|Dear Family and Friends:
When my husband, David, lost his battle with a brain tumor almost three years ago, many people wondered why? How could this happen to someone so young, so vibrant, so special? The answer of course, is that there is no answer. But there was another question that was asked with equal passion, and that was "what can we do now?" That question does have an answer, and YOU can make it happen.
On Sunday, October 18th the Third Annual "Have A Chance Walk" will take place in lower Manhattan, and will benefit Have a Chance and the Brain Tumor Society. I am the team captain, and this is your personal invitation to join our team, named "Make It Happen". Come together with a team of people from all parts of David's life, for a day of fun, friendship, memories and above all, doing a good deed. Join the many people who loved David, and who, again, want to do something meaningful in his honor. We will be raising money to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. As brain tumor research and treatments receive among the lowest amounts of federal funding, your support is essential to allow this important work to continue.
Here are the different possible ways you can get involved:
- Join our team as a participant and raise money (even if you can't make it the day of the event)
- Become a volunteer at the event and raise money
We have a chance to change the course of the lives of people who are suffering from brain tumors right now, and those who have yet to be diagnosed. Won't you please join me, ask your friends to walk with us, or give generously. Additionally, please forward this email on to everyone you know all are welcome. Now is the time, the time to make it happen. I look forward to seeing you on October 18th.
With many thanks,
