We have set up a foundation in my sister's memory, please check out www.rhoadssix.com!


We are soon to begin a dollar drive,

One dollar a day will go so far.

For my sister was given three years of living after diagnosis,

where just a decade ago she wouldn,t have had that.

 

So Rhoads Six is set up to keep going with the research,

To  give comfort to patients dealing with this disease,

And to award scholarships to nurses as well as,

To students of veterinary studies like my sis.

 

Please, if you will, help me get the word out,

So research can do its magic,

Perhaps, someday leukemia will be conquered,

For the price of just a dollar a day!

I lost a very young cousin to leukemia so your verses are particularly impactful; thank you, Karen. Love and best wishes to you,

A great cause and one that should be supported in any way possible. Have you set up a facebook page for this Karen?
