KatieB Posted May 31, 2012 Share Posted May 31, 2012 Good afternoon everyone! Just wanted to open the air. Judy's memorial is tomorrow so let's take a moment to reflect and remember our dear friend. It's not lost on me that tomorrow is also the start of ASCO, American Society of Clinical Oncology conferences. The largest oncology conference in the world with over 30K oncologists in attendance. It was at this exact conference in 2009 that Judy and I met. I will go into the 2012 meetings remembering her and our wonderful visit. This is Judy's daughter, Wendy, announcing a memorial service to be held for my mother in Key West, Fl. There will be a gathering at White Street Pier in front of the Aids Memorial Site at 4 pm on June 1, 2012. Friends and family are welcome to gather afterwards at Salute. Among my mother's many accomplishments she had a Master's Degree in counseling, was the Director of Saint Leo College, private practice mental health therapist and CEO of Mitchell Enterprises. She was also a member of Zonta organization and very active in Lungevity organization. She will be dearly missed by family, friends and anyone fortunate enough to have known her. There should be some blockbuster studies on lung cancer out of this conference. This is a great thing--I've attended in years past when there was no knews at all on lung cancer aside from studies who had a 4-5 month median survival rate. I will report back anything that I hear and Jack West will be putting together an ASCO recap webinar that will be free for anyone to listen into. What's on your agenda this weekend? Hugs and love, KatieB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
