Dear Friends and Family,

Every year as I begin this 2-3 month journey in the fight against cancer, I am reminded of all of you who have shared this journey with me over the last 24 years and the stories you have all shared with me as well.  It is always my honor to stand with all of you in the name of HOPE - HOPE for a better tomorrow.  

To that end, my daughter & I will be joining my sister, Janice Kueppers, again at the Los Angeles PurpleStride walk for Pancreatic Cancer on April 27th at the Santa Monica Pier.  Be it this walk, or the Phila. Broad Street Run, the story and the emotions never change, not even after 24 years.  In fact, the older we get, the more personal it becomes.  This 2-month journey still represents to me what people can achieve when we come together for something much greater than ourselves.  Your stories are a testament to the “will” of the human spirit and the strength which comes from each of us supporting the other.  It is the “good” that is found in moments of difficulty and a reminder of what is most important in life…the love of family and friends. 

For me, this year, it is still about my sister - my best friend whom I laugh with, share family time with, talk about life with, make the best memories with, and share our hearts without limit.  We will walk to help bring hope and assistance to those fighting cancer through our fundraising efforts.  My sister and our family have been given the gift of more time together.  We are hoping others will be able to make more memories with their loved ones as a direct result of further research, treatments, and trials.

Our team name, Harmony Heals, stems from my sister’s love of music & singing. She has touched so many lives through her teachings and through her love for music.  I am asking you to help make April 27th amazing for her and for so many fighting this disease. 

Thank you for your continued support and for continuing to help make a difference in the fight against cancer.  It is my hope that our children and grandchildren will never have to know this disease, in any of its forms, and that one day, we will all walk (or run) in celebration of having found a cure.  No Surrender, my friends, No Surrender!

With Love & Appreciation,

Gail Strohmeyer
