Dear Family and Friends,
Today would have been my husband Jim’s 68th birthday. November 29th will be the 5-year anniversary of his passing. In 2019 I intend to fund a memorial slate at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center honoring Jim. My memorial gift for this slate will be designated for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma research at the center. It is my greatest desire to witness a cure for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. In the last five years alone there have been amazing breakthrough treatments developed for NHL, most notably the current CAR-T immunotherapy that is providing Lymphoma patients real hope.
Will you join me in funding this research? Any gift is meaningful. No amount is too small. This research saves lives!
The slate for Jim will read:
IN LOVING MEMORY OF JIM WALSH
“THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO HAPPINESS AND THAT IS TO
CEASE WORRYING ABOUT THINGS WHICH ARE BEYOND THE
POWER OF OUR WILL.” EPICTETUS
WITH GRATITUDE TO THE TEAM AT SCCA
Your gift can be made via check or by credit card via the Fred Hutch website. All funds must be received no later than April 15, 2019. Use the following link if you want to make a gift on-line: engage.fredhutch.org/goto/Jim. Don’t forget company matching if your organization has this benefit! For those of you who make donations regularly in memory of Jim, I am not asking you to donate more. If you could just use the website for your donation, your gift will be included in this campaign.
The slate will be installed in July of 2019 and there will be a ceremony celebrating the memorial later in the year. You are all welcome to attend.
Thank you for considering making a donation to the Fred Hutch. Every dollar saves lives!
