City of Hope, UCLA, Project Angel Food – these are three great orgs that benefit form the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Lisa is walking and this is her page . http://info.avonfoundation.org/site/TR?px=4586399&pg=personal&fr_id=2174&et=RXl1IrxWgi7CT-iwBLpngQ&s_tafId=553721 . I like that 80% of funds raised stay in the area where the walks are held.
Why should I post this on the page for Homelessness? Well, Cancer killed Jim Mulvey – whom I loved and adored and he was a formerly homeless man who lived and died on Skid Row. From the day he was diagnosed, he lived 3 months and 3 weeks. I drove him to UCL
A for treatment. Cancer isn’t just for the rich.
Also, My friend Linda Harris had a double mastectomy just months after I met her at The Lamp Lodge. She only had Medi-Cal and the excellent services of USC Medical Center.
