Welcome to the my personal page
This year I will be participating in the 38th Annual Prouty, held on July 12 & 13, 2019, in Hanover, New Hampshire. Somehow. But I'm not sure what the day will allow me to do this year.
In the past, I have biked, rowed, volunteerered or occasionally virtualed. This year it will probably be volunteering or walking. I will miss the biking and rowing but given my situation with my disease, I am going to find joy in one of those two.
As you alll know, (and this is the canned part of the message): Money raised helps to fund cancer research and patient supportive services at Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 49 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute. Supporting The Prouty means supporting researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer. You’re also supporting important patient supportive services that would otherwise not be funded such as support groups, massage, writing and arts therapy programs.
From personal experience, I can fully vouch for both missions of the Prouty. The NCCC is a wonderful place to get care! The individuals providing the care are universally great for the patients. It is truly remarkable. The research I have had less direct contact with but understand that as it relates to treatment for many diseases including Multiple Myeloma, a new cutting edge CAR-T program is now being initiated. I believe that the most visible impact on patients support services that the Prouty provides funding for are the many offerings including writing, support, art, massage, counselling and many others. Some are run by volunteers and some are not. I have been especially involved in the writing program and will be soon self publishing a book of what some call poems. I call them writing with linebreaks. The support I have received from the director of the program and groups involved in it have been a special part of my journey.
So bottom line - Please consider supporting the Proutyand the NCCC! By doing so - you also support the Hanover High School Crew Team!
Thanks so much!!!
