I’m riding in honor of my dad.
My father, Bob Black, has two kinds of cancer. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and non-malignant melanoma. At least every six months, my dad goes in to Roswell Part to check on his WBCs to make sure his leukemia is under control. Thankfully, to date, they always have been. The staff at Roswell Park have always been accommodating, and the environment they provide for their patients brings comfort beyond what we've seen in other hospitals.
I remember when his first blood test showed an elevated WBC count, I went with him to his first appointment at Roswell. It was mid-morning, and we were sitting in the lobby, Tim Horton's in hand, waiting anxiously to be called back. In the lobby, there's a piano that we noticed when we walked in. While we were waiting, a man sat down and started to play a tune. That was how we found out about the "Music in the Lobby" program, with a melody bringing calm to a stressful morning.
Mornings like that are why I'm grateful that we have Roswell Park as a part of our community, and I'm raising funds to help them continue their research and to help them continue to excel in patient care.
Please help me raise critically needed funds to support the thousands of patients who turn to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for hope each year. Your donation provides funding researchers need right now to investigate new treatment options that could save lives. For every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
