Dear Friends and Family,
As some of you may know ....I lost a dear friend Dina Trunik to cancer this year. This horrible disease started for her on her 13 birthday close to when I first met her and continued on for many years until she finally lost her battle Sept. of 2013 at a young age of 45. She battled Hodgkins Lymphoma, non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, radical mastectomy, thyroid cancer, and then the last she developed a large mast that took one kidney, went into her diaphragm, and continued to grow and not be treatable. In spite of all she went through, she lived a positive, enriching life and always went after her passions and dreams. After her passing I was left with the feeling of… “What can I do now? What can I do to honor her life?” All of us have been touched by cancer in some way, either it be a co-worker, friend, or family member. We all know how devastating this can be on those closely involved. After thinking about it, I was compelled to set up a fund raiser team ("The Tumornaters") for Hood to Coast 2014. Our team goal is to raise $10,000 (all tax deductible donations). Each member of our team will be helping us reach this goal. The money earned will be then donated to PROVIDENCE PORTLAND MEDICAL FOUNDATION to help fund the continuing search for a cure to this deadly disease. Please help us reach our goal by simply donating $10, $20, $30, $100, or a donation of your choice. Asking for money from friends, family or co-workers is never easy, but I feel in this case it may help future generations in finding a cure and give them a chance at living longer lives. Please help us and donate today!! =) And feel free to pass this on to your friends and family as well.

Dina, I wish there was a way I could bring you back to all who loved you, but may your life be honored by doing all we can to help save another precious life. Your smile and your memory will live on in all who knew you.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!!
