We can't thank everyone enough for all that they have done. A team of Rowan engineer student presidents were presented with my story and asked if they'd like to help us raise awareness and lend a hand to some repairs at my home to help make it safer for me. They did not hesitate for one moment. Over the last few months they discussed ideas and met weekly for a month before the Histio Kick off event they held on October 5,2012. It included Rowan Physician, Dr. Peggy Hurley, the President of the Histiocytosis Association, Jeff Toughill and myself. That week they also held wristband and food sales in addition to the two Dine for A Cause night at the Landmark Americana in Glassboro. 25% of each check that presented a coupon was donated. This week MTG construction has begun the repairs on our home. We are still in awe over all of this and are amazed and filled with joy and gratitude for all of the hard work that has been put forth by Rowan students & faculty and MTG construction. We are truly blessed.
A special thanks to Dr. Beena Sukumaran and Dr. Chin for coordinating & hosting the histio awareness events. It means a lot to us that we could share this information and help someone in the future by doing so. We are eternally grateful to all Rowan has done for us and the histio community.
