Givers Gain.


Last Friday, we drove up to Montreal and proudly presented Dr. Jane Pappas with a check for $100,000 on behalf of The Cure Starts Now Foundation and the DIPG Collaborative.

Dr. Jane Pappas works in conjunction with Jewish General Hospital and our Medical Advisory Board approved her grant to research genetic and epigenetic profiling within DIPG cells in vitro.  We were excited to have the opportunity to present Jane with this check, she was certainly surprised, thankful and emotional.  It’s fulfilling to see this money going to the right spots  —  Our collective efforts are making a difference and we’d like to say thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support this worthy cause.  

Watch us present this grant to Jane:

Thank You!!


REMINDER: Tonight is the last chance to donate through our Blog to Friday’s Dancing with the Lakes Region Stars Charity Event. Go to to see links on recent posts to donate and make a difference in our community.  Cash and check donations are accepted at the show. We hope to bring home the Grand Prize for The Cure Starts Now!!

Below is a list of the “competition”. Tickets to the event are Sold Out – it is sure to be entertaining.


We wish everyone luck, and thanks again to the wonderful community around us!

Alison and Jesse
