Please help me raise much-needed funding to speed research for more effective treatments -- and hopefully, one day, a cure -- for leukemia and lymphoma.
Neal lived with Hodgkin's lymphoma for 16 years. The treatments extended his life, and we’re all grateful for that. But bone-marrow transplants and chemotherapy eroded Neal's quality of life and took an emotional toll on him and his loved ones.
Please help us fund research that will find more effective and targeted treatments with fewer side effects and an eventual cure for the disease that took a wonderful man from us much too soon.
On July 20, Neal's widow -- Kate Callen -- and I ran through Neal's favorite place -- Coronado -- to Glorietta Bay, where Neal loved to swim and snorkel and take his beautiful photos of sea life.
My wife, Meg Bouher, and Neal's sister-in-law, Brae Canlen, joined us for a nice tribune to someone we'll all miss so much.
Thanks again to all of you (47 friends and family members!) who gave so generously in Neal's honor to the non-profit Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Your donations helped us quickly beat three fundraising goals, and I'm hoping those of you who've been meaning to contribute will do so now, so we can meet our final goal of $8,000.
Please email or call me if you have any questions, and again, thanks much for your generous donation to a really good cause.
