Ben Towne Foundation...

This past Friday was the Ben Towne Foundation's annual Benefit Dinner.  It is something that we look forward to each year because it is personal and important to each of us that attended.  Our table consisted primarily of Ben's former nurses.  We knew this sweet boy personally and watched him fight Neuroblastoma as hard as anyone could.  Sheer determination doesn't always give you the outcome you so desperately want... and unfortunately, all of us have witnessed this first hand too many times.  Ben's mom and dad, Carin and Jeff, have created the Ben Towne Foundation in Ben's honor for the sole purpose of accelerating pediatric cancer research... and they are doing amazing things.  I feel so honored to know them and I am inspired by their will to make a difference.  Please help them if you can.

It was great to see you there - it's our favorite BENefit, too! We'll always be grateful to you and your fellow nurses for the fabulous care you gave to Katie and our family - and to you for introducing us to Carin & Jeff. Thank you!
