Thank You, and Charities

A message from at 10:11pm about Dad, Life Events, Lung Cancer.

We would like to thank everyone who sent condolences, flowers, and gifts. We are in the process of writing proper thank you cards, but I wanted to let everyone know that we appreciate your support.

To reiterate what Peter said earlier, Dad was clearly loved by many and will be missed.

Several of you have asked if there were any charities you could donate to in Dad’s memory. Here they are:

Tzu Chi Foundation
This is the Buddhist organization that led the funeral service. They do a lot of relief work all over the world.

Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE)
GRACE was an enormously helpful resource for us as we learned about lung cancer and researched different treatment options for Dad. It’s a relatively new foundation and could definitely use your support.

Wisconsin Parkinson Association
Many of you know that Dad also suffered from Manganism, a neurological disorder similar to Parkinson’s Disease. He had actually been mis-diagnosed for many years, but Dr. Nausieda at the Wisconsin Parkinson Association made the correct diagnosis and began a treatment plan that improved Dad’s quality of life greatly. We are very grateful to him and the Wisconsin Parkinson Association.

Thank you all again for your kindness and generosity.
