May God bless and protect you!
We are truly blessed with wonderful friends, community, colleagues and family. All of us are united in a war we must wage every day, one we must not surrender to: the fight against cancer. How amazing is it to see how dramatically our lives can change in a day, an hour, a minute. No one ever forgets the moment they hear the words, “You have cancer.” We believe it renews our resolve to make the most of each moment and remember kindness to our fellow human beings.
We applaud and celebrate the survivors who give us constant hope. We pray for those fighting for their lives and their strength. We remember those we have lost. We must continue to raise funds until we find a cure for this dreaded disease–we will win this battle–treatment and results improve every day! We must never give up, no matter how hard the battle is that we must fight, sometimes just one hour at a time.
With your help, the ‘From the Hearts of the Hanney’s Campaign’ was able to present Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with $11,270.00, totaling $191,561.00 in funds raised to fight this disease over the course of the thirteen years we have been devoted to honoring Sam Rugoff and Gerry & Elizabeth Hanney, and so many others.
We are proud to live in a country where this type of fundraiser is possible. We are proud of our friends, our family, our colleagues, our community, our pets–all who have helped make this possible, even if it meant a financial sacrifice for the greater good–regardless of the economy. Strive for the words, “You are cured!” Thank you so much for doing the right thing and continuing to – – save a life today!
John & Iris & the Three P’s!
Each year John and I do a very in depth review of our lives, our hopes, our beliefs, our blessings and our goals. Never in all our years together have either of us ever failed to believe that our primary purpose on earth is to help others — to help save a life today! We try to live in the spirit of giving back to our community and helping our world be a better place because we do believe, from our hearts, that one human being, with God’s help, can make a difference.
It is in that spirit of giving that once again we come to you and ask that you participate with us in helping to save a life. This year we are taking a different direction and our fundraising will be to support Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
If you are going to be in Anaheim next week for the ALA 2012 Annual Conference stop by and say hello! We’ll be with Accessible Archives in booth 1762 at this event. Be sure to swing by, or contact us to set up a meeting.
