Joan's Legacy - A good group to support


Recommended Posts

I recently came became aware of the Joan Scarangelllo Foundation when a good friend of mine passed away from lung cancer. She was a 5 year survivor - Stage IV. Her family requested that donations be made to this organization in lieu of flowers. I am very impressed by what I have read. They award grants annually for research projects. The reciepent must bear all of their indirect costs related to the research which means each dollar donated goes towards finding a cure/better treatment for us. Joan was a writer in NYC. She was a life long non-smoker and 47 years old when she passed away 9 months after being diagnosised.

They have a website where you can read more. www.joanslegacy.org

I ask that you take a look and consider supporting them in whatever activism/ advocate activities that you take on.

Dr.Tim Johnson and Charlie Gibson are

both from ABC, which is sadly where

Peter Jennings soes the Nightline News.

There should be a lot more involvement with

Joan's Legacy. Apparently she was a very

fluential(sp?) person. In fact Charlie

Gibson is going to be sitting in for

Mr.Jennings when he's not feeling well.
