Friends and Family,
Last fall life abruptly changed for Ann, my beloved wife and partner, as it does for so many of God’s Love We Deliver clients. A kidney cancer from 2003 that had been removed, treated and forgotten, quite suddenly reappeared. This led to a “big” surgery and ongoing treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering...with an incredibly successful outcome.
Throughout it all, I was fortunate to be able and compeletly honored to be at Ann's side. Friends and family rallied around Ann, it was simply awesome to see...so much love, compassion and hope. As a team, we made sure that Ann got the rest and nourishmernt required to fight her cancer and recover from surgery.
Today, as many of you know, I am now also Ann's professional partner. To support Ann and The Douglas Elliman 2018 Ride For Love Team, I have committed to ride 100 miles on October 27th in support of those people and families impacted by cancer through God's Love We Deliver, an incredibly worthy philanthropic entity.
GLWD's story began with a single person who strived to help her friends, too weak to cook for themselves, and is mega inspiring. Out of one individual’s kindness, a glorious expression, the best part of us, our New York family, has grown and grown. On September 28th, GLWD delivered it’s 20 millionth meal.
What happens when someone becomes ill and doesn’t have a family or friends, or the support system is tapped out, emotionally or financially? These are stressful times. An illness can drive a family to the brink. That’s when GLWD steps in, providing meals that are tailor-made for each patient and to also nourish the entire family.
Please donate generously, in honor of Ann's life and story, and also because of all of the people reached every day, whose stories go unknown, but, thanks to God’s Love We Deliver, are not unheard.
