EVENT: Salute the Sun Wisely 2017
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
I am once again raising funds this year in memory of my beloved daughter Rebecca, whom we lost to melanoma in 2011. Everything I raise goes toward the Rebecca Garrison-Sokoloff Melanoma Research Endowment at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. We are in the last year of our campaign to raise the $100,000 we have pledged for the endowment and are very close to our goal.
Having had my own brush with cancer in recent months, I am more aware than ever of how important it is that cancer patients have effective treatment options when they are diagnosed. Rebecca did not have easy access to those options when she was diagnosed but, because she was able to enroll in clinical trials that were leading to breakthrough discoveries, was able to fight her disease for seven years. Research continues to provide an ever increasing range of treatment options, but melanoma continues to kill one American every hour. Please help us reach the finish line by becoming one of my sponsors.
