Join us every Wednesday for a great networking opportunity. This group is "very social" but we do a lot of business too! We have a special place all the way in the back of the restaurant.
Everyone is asked to donate $5 per attendance to support the quarter charity.
Each quarter a charity/cause is chosen and all funds collected during the quarter are then donated to the chosen group. This quarter we are sharing with one of our own. Nancy, the mother of Dr. Julie Henderson, has been diagnosed with Large Cell Lymphoma. Please read below.
What is Large Cell Lymphoma?
Large cell lymphoma is a form of non-Hodgkin’s disease and accounts for roughly 31% of all non-Hodgkin’s diagnoses. This cancer affects the immune system and decreases the ability to fight off infection & disease. Because it is so aggressive, large cell lymphoma has a tendency to spread rapidly to many areas of the body, but most commonly the bones, central nervous system and the gut.
It is believed to be caused by genetics and/or previous exposure to viral infections and is more common in the elderly population. Treatments for this condition include: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and/or stem cell transplants.
My mother’s name is Nancy Mackelburger. She is 60 years old, was born & raised in the Denver metro area and now lives in Tucson, AZ with my Dad, Fred. At the beginning of March 2013, she was diagnosed with a cancer known as Large Cell Lymphoma. When it was found, it had already spread from her lymph nodes into her liver, one adrenal gland and her bone marrow. Although this cancer is aggressive, the prognosis is good! Her treatment protocol is chemotherapy every three weeks for the next six months. During her treatment, she will not be able to work. Now, not only will she have medical expenses to pay for, but no income to pay her regular day-to-day bills. This is why I started Nancy’s Fund!
I am currently accepting donations for the silent auction & prize drawing. More info coming soon!
