This year do not be surprised if you receive a phone call, text, or email from a volunteer, board member, or myself! We are trying to connect with you, to learn more about you, and how we can further our relationship with YOU! I look forward to the opportunity to meet you in person, hopefully throughout the year.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It is the time of year when we really begin to say thanks. We have been saying this all year long! YOU have made so much possible this year and we are hoping as we begin to see the holiday lights which indicate the end of this year, we will ask for YOU to help us do much much more.

Wow, what an amazing past month with 4 cities, hosting a Dragonslayer walk! Thank you to everyone who sponsored, volunteered, spoke, attended, fundraised, and donated to any of the 4 Dragonslayer Walks this year. We say that's a wrap but really Slayers you can fundraise until the end of the year. We have not met our walk fundraising goals yet for the year and you can help us reach those goals.

Wow, during July we hosted a Researchers Update Night with Dr. Eleanor Chen. She provided some amazing microscopic slide comparisons of different types of Sarcomas. It was great to hear directly from a pathologist. Did you know it is the pathologist who makes the diagnosis? They read your tests and determine the results. We also could see how easy it is to miss read the slides, some look so much like others. We cannot thank Dr. Chen enough for sharing with us, her recording is available on our YouTube Channel. Dr. Chen joins many others who have presented during Researcher Update Night, if you have not had a chance to join us, the recordings are available on your YouTube Channel. Highly recommended!

Thank you volunteers for making our events and programs run so smoothly! As we launch into Volunteer Appreciation month everyone here says thank you! We have realized that just last month was 6 months until the Dragonslayer Walks, where we ask so much of many of you. So again, thanks! Earlier this year the board and staff worked diligently to establish and define committees to support the work of the organization. We are searching for volunteers who want to participate in the next part of the future of the NW Sarcoma Foundation. We decided on four committees, and we are looking for some great people to get involved.

Thank YOU! We had an ostentatious goal of $10,000, through your giving and support we made it almost to $5,000. We appreciate your SUPPORT to our patients and their families in the PNW, we appreciate your help with EDUCATION to our supporters, and most of all we appreciate the continued HOPE you provide to all Sarcoma patients, survivors, caregivers, and survivors of Sarcoma angels.

We are excited to be the recipients of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust grant. This three year grant will allow us to hire a development coordinator and purchase the Classy Platform. With a new teammate and CRM, we will be able to maintain a donor database in one location, while providing a user friendly experience for donations and event registration. All of this will help us better serve Sarcoma patients and families in the Pacific Northwest.
