To our Edelman – Gardner Cancer Research Supporters,
This communication is to check in on our Edelman – Gardner CRF supporters. We hope you and your families are healthy, safe, and finding ways to be strong through these unprecedented times.
We all are facing challenges in one way or another, whether it be health issues, difficulty not seeing loved ones, and that one thing we sometimes took for granted, lunch or breakfast with a friend or family member. If you are like my family, the absence of hugs is a tough one but, in the end, it will make that breakout time more special.
Despite the challenges we are facing today relative to Cancer Research, there are some good things going on as well.
Wilmot Cancer Institute is aggressively on their path to achieve NCI (National Cancer Institute) status. This has been a long and challenging journey for them, but the rewards of that status change will benefit us all with additional resources and grants for research. You all have played a big part in that.
The foundation is solid, and our goals remain the same. Our lives have been put on hold and many activities for fundraising have paused due to COVID19. Purpose of this is to not ask for more money rather to assure you that we will continue to move forward. Two things remain constant; the need to continue supporting our research projects and OUR commitment to our Angels that left us to early and for those that are fighting the fight today.
In May we will continue our annual donation of $50,000 to the Wilmot Cancer Institute to fund a research project.
We will look for ways to adapt to the conditions around us. Our Ladies Golf tournament will be held! We will know more when this will be when it is deemed safe for all of you.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, thanks for all of your support and we will continue to keep you and your families in our prayers during this difficult time. Please stay safe and we will see you all soon.
