THE STORY:

My sister Karen passed away recently after a long fought battle against leiomyosarcoma. Karen knew from the beginning there was no cure but with an unbelievable strength and courage she continued to fight. She searched for treatments and was placed on chemo and radiation, some of which were trials that had devastating effects on other organs. Karen maintained this attitude even up to the very end. One week before her passing, with difficulty breathing, weak and unable to walk she asked her doctor to place her on a new treatment that she knew wouldn't help her, she said "I don't mind being a guinea pig if I know they can learn how to cure people in the future". I will never forget that day when the doctor said no to the treatment, she didn't skip a beat, she reached out held my hand and said "it will be ok", worrying more about me then herself. Karen lived in San Diego, but through her research found Mary's Place. She stayed with her friend who is fighting the same battle. Mary's Place offered them a place to relax and bond in a way that only those fighting the battle can understand. Once Karen stayed she was hooked. She loved Mary's Place, the people there and all it offers to women that may need a little light in a dark time. Mary's Place by the Sea and the people that give their time to keep it running exemplify all that my sister held dear, selflessness and giving. I know that everyone either had or knows someone that has had cancer. Please join Team Karen "Slay the Dragon"and support Mary's Place by the Sea. Together we can help give a little comfort to women that have had or are currently battling cancer. I have created Team Karen In the loving memory of the most caring and giving person I have ever known and I am proud to have called her my sister. The donation and time you give will mean so much to those who need it most. Thank You Janice Romano
