Dear Karen, Hi; happy to hear you are doing the marathon again. Hoping you are doing well. I've enclosed my contribution,however this year it has been a new meaning for me. My oldest sister, Gloria, who turned 54 yrs old this June, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma last Thursday. It came as quite a surprise to all of us. Her doctors just did a bone marrow biopsy to find out if that area has been affected as well. We are all hoping for the best. Hoping you do well in the marathon. Take care my friend and keep in touch. April PLease add my sister's name to your honoree bracelet- Gloria Padilla
