A Little Help From My Friends

You may already know that Sophia, Nancy, Raul and I are putting on a race this weekend, the Pilgrim Pacer.


This race normally raises money for Harvesters, but this year, we are also raising money for the Braden Hofen Fund. Please read his story below:



Braden Hofen was diagnosed with Stage IV, high risk neuroblastoma on December 28, 2007 at the age of 3. Braden was given a 30% chance for survival at that time. He went through six high dose rounds of chemotherapy, an autologous bone marrow transplant, radiation therapy, and follow up therapies. Braden was declared to be in remission but merely a few months later, only a few weeks from his fifth birthday, his cancer relapsed. Braden now has only a 10% chance for survival. Braden is undergoing medical treatments both at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri and at the Children's Hopsital of Philadelphia. Braden and his family appreciate all of your thoughts, prayers, and hopes for a miracle! Thank you!

I'm so sorry to hear of little Braden. My best friend and I are running St. Judes marathon in December. We are running in memory of my friends grandson who just lost his life to neuroblastoma. He was 2. It is a nasty, horrible cancer that strikes kids. Here is Chase Ryan Schlenkers caring bridge site:

My heart goes out to him and his family.

Perhaps the tension originates from the generic concept of social return with conventional return on investment or related.

It’s interesting how they will carry out the initiation of steps for proper implementation of the initiative for government recognition.
