Stand Up 2 Cancer

Tomorrow night at 8:00 pm the three television networks, ABC, NBC, and CBS (remember them?) are airing a star-studded show aimed at both providing information about and accelerating fund raising for cancer research, particularly novel therapies that are in their infancy but have promising results. Cancer research is an issue that has become near and dear to my heart, and I would ask that you let this program touch you in some way, however small. If television is not your thing (it is certainly not mine), there is also a website associated with this event ( It is not necessary to donate money; there is a sample letter to send to your representatives in Congress as well as a host of information to help get educated on other ways to provide support.

Please make some time for this event. Unfortunately, the lives of too many people depend upon it.

Hi Elyse,
Any word on the surgery? I hope each day is at least bringing you a smile and a good thought. My niece's bat mitzvah is this weekend and I will actually be in synagogue twice. I will say many prayers for you. As always you are in our thoughts (Lucas too!).
Love to all!!!
