This past June my mother was diagnosed with throat cancer. I published an article here at Violinist.com and the response of encouragement was overwhelming, to say the least. Al Ku emailed me to say that his Wife is an Oncologist and if we had any questions to feel free to submit them to him. Karen Allendorfer also contacted me as well as Raphael and several others. Anne-Marie Proulx and Sam Mihailoff have become very supportive friends with Sam going above and beyond the call of duty and is now held very dear to my family's heart!
A month ago Mom had her last treatment and is recovering remarkably well! She wishes to thank all in this violin community for the encouragements and offers of support. This past weekend I was with my folks and played Mom 3 rounds of Miniature Golf which with 4 hole-in-ones she skunked me on the 1st game! We also picked chokecherries which I will be making syrup for pancakes.
So To All of You, we are indebted to you and love you all!
