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:

Our Dad will be putting on a show on Friday, November 13th at the Lakes Region Dancing with the Stars Charity Event in Meredith, NH.   He is dancing with our amazing and talented friend Natalie Lyons – she is good!  They are practicing hard (almost every day!) and dancing for the New Hampshire Chapter of The Cure Starts Now, in honor of our brother, John.   

As you probably know, this Foundation is making great strides in providing vital information and funds to the World’s best Pediatric Neurologists  —  This allows them to initiate and execute educated and effective clinical trials which get us closer to the Homerun Cure.  The New Hampshire Chapter has made an incredible impact for that cause  –  We have you to thank!

The event will take place at the Inter-Lakes High School Auditorium in Meredith, NH.  The Show starts at 6:30 and we need your help.  Each team performs and the audience members cast votes for the team / charity they wish to support, every dollar is a vote!  The charity with the most votes / money raised will receive 50% of ALL the money raised.  The runner up receives 25% and all other charities divide the remaining funds.  All in all, 100% of the money collected will go to great local charities so please do what you can to support this great fundraiser.

JBT Regatta Photos!

Thanks again for all of the support we received at the 2nd Annual JBT Regatta at the Winnipesaukee Yacht Club on June 18th.  We had a huge turnout, not only with the sailors who raced in the Regatta and the 200+ people who came out for the BBQ & Auction, but the dozens of friends and colleagues who sent us incredibly generous donations.  We raised over $45,000 for The Cure Starts Now Foundation!!

A HUGE thank you goes to our great friends, the Milligan’s.  Yesterday’s Milligan Memorial Golf Tournament raised another $14,500 for CSN – as well as $14,500 for the Babcock Scholarship Fund.   INCREDIBLE!!  

Please know that you all are truly a part of something special  —  CSN is a wonderful foundation powered by families that have endured the same heartache that DIPG delivered us  –  We will end this devastating disease, no matter how long it takes!   Please know how appreciative and sincerely thankful we are for your support …  It means the world to us and we are so proud to be making this impact in John’s honor.
