Thank You

Thank you for your kind words for my sister, my family will cherish this wall. Please excuse my frankness at this time, but I'm compelled by Connie's wishes. She wanted me to to remind you that words don’t weigh as much as money for research, and as much as we hate it, cash is what our scientists need to keep our families healthy.

Cancer must be vanquished and I’m asking for your help on behalf of my sister. No amount is too small.

I remain, though now in her shadow, very truly yours, xsammy

Your life and death both inspire and terrify me. I am 9 years in remission after Round 2 with breast cancer. Now is Awesome! No truer words ever said. How remarkably lucky we have been to have had you here.
