Hello Friends!

It sure has been a crazy year in so many unpredictable ways.  I really hope you and all your loved ones are doing well amongst this insanity.  Melissa, the doggies, and I are all good and have actually managed to have a really nice summer together.

The unsettling year has challenged us all, but my commitment to the fight against pancreatic cancer is unwavering.  It’s been now 9 years since we suddenly lost my dad to this awful disease and I am as devoted as ever to being an active part of the fight to better outcomes for others who receive this grave diagnosis.

Personally, I have gotten linked up with the University of Cincinnati Barrett Cancer Center’s top pancreatic cancer doctor to keep an active watch on my own biological profile and to add to the scientific community’s data on the familial nature of the disease.  And, of course, I am working again this year to raise money for the leading organization in the world that is fighting pancreatic cancer, PANCAN.

It is surely true that a lot of people’s situations have been stressed this year and so if you are able to, I would be humbled by any donations you are able to make to this year’s campaign.  There isn’t an in-person walk in Cincinnati due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, but they are holding a virtual walk so I’ve got team DL’s Crew back on the team participant roster.  Melissa and I plan to do a 5k walk the morning of the virtual walk (Sept 25) and I’m sure we’ll find some take out brunch goodness to refuel.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your past support of this important cause and for considering it this year as well.  I’m really hopeful that next year we are able to do something big to get back on the tradition of a great day of friends in honor of DL.

Peace and love to you all!
