|Please help me support Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center!|
|Cancer has taken from us two of the most important and finest people in my life, my dad, Jack Roberts and Mardie’s mom Mary Louise Mielke. While their memories sustain us, their losses have left gaping holes in our lives.|
On July 8 and 9 of this year I will be riding in their memory in the 9th Annual Prouty Ultimate bike ride to support the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center 100 miles each day through the HILLS of New Hampshire and Vermont. In a beautiful piece of symmetry, the next day I will be attending the birthday party of two of my grandchildren, Jack Edmond Roberts Hafner (soon to be 5) and Denney Brae Roberts Hafner (soon to be 3). Young Jack is named after my dad. Dad knew was coming, but didn’t get to actually meet the next Jack in the family. Denney is the maiden name of Mary Louise.
Through the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center and the Prouty, you support Cancer Center researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer. You also support important patient services that would otherwise not be funded.
All money raised helps to support cancer research and patient services at Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 45 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute for excellence in cancer research, care and community outreach. Research conducted here informs patient treatment around the world.
Thank you for your support!
