A few years ago I lost a dear friend who was my age in a construction accident. Everyone here came to our family through prayers & spirit in our time of need. I told his widow about Lisa passsing & she said that when Pat died, instead of everyone sending her flowers, which was nice, what she really needed right then was money for her son.

So . . .

I know I can't make it to a funeral but instead of sending flowers I intend on sending the money I would have spent on them to Tom for he & Michael.

Anyone know how to get this info? (Probably not something to be made public?)

I'm waiting for Tom to come back and make an announcement on the arrangements. Maybe he will want to have memorial contributions directed to a church or The American Cancer Society.

Great idea Dave. I just want to add that it may be hard to ask for what is really needed.

Another suggestion for donations would be to the hospice that helped the Dodd family through their struggle. Hospice's exists due to the kindness of the volunteers who give their time and through donations. These organizations provide a service for the ill and their families that is invaluable.

Regardless of what is decided, I would like to contribute in memory of this fallen warrior to whatever agency or fund the Dodd family endorses.

We see how much the fence fund raised. All we can do is try and donate as much as we can. Wether it is thru generous donations, auctions, etc. I would suspect this would continue much like the Bill Ector fund is still going. Could HTN do the donation cards as well?

Perhaps a 529 Plan for Michael?

Good idea. In case people do not know

A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs. 529 plans, legally known as “qualified tuition plans,” are sponsored by states, state agencies, or educational institutions and are authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code.

There are two types of 529 plans: pre-paid tuition plans and college savings plans. All fifty states and the District of Columbia sponsor at least one type of 529 plan. In addition, a group of private colleges and universities sponsor a pre-paid tuition plan.

Folks, I have spoken with Tom today... he's holding his own and asked that you all continue to pray for he and Michael and also for our dear brother, Bobo.

Tom continues to be humbled and comforted by the outpouring of love from the people of this site and thanks you all for your love, generosity and concern.

It's is Tom's wish that in lieu of flowers or other contributuions that a donation in Lisa's name be made to the Susan B. Komen Foundation.

The Susan B. Komen Foundation
5005 LBJ Fwy Ste. 250
Dallas, Texas

Thank you,
Libby

Our Work
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is fighting every minute of every day to finally, once and for all, finish what we started and achieve our vision of a world without breast cancer.

Fulfilling the Promise
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

Breast Cancer Then and Now
For the past 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer - transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. We are proud of our contribution to some real victories:

More early detection - nearly 75 percent of women over 40 years old now receive regular mammograms, the single most effective tool for detecting breast cancer early (in 1982, less than 30 percent received a clinical exam).
More hope - the five-year survival rate for breast cancer, when caught early before it spreads beyond the breast, is now 98 percent (compared to 74 percent in 1982).
More research - the federal government now devotes more than $900 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention (compared to $30 million in 1982).
More survivors - America's 2.3 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S., are a living testament to the power of society and science to save lives.
Seeing it Through
We view our 25th anniversary not as a celebration, but as a watershed moment in our fight to end breast cancer. It's a time to take stock of where we are, realign our resources and recommit to finally, once and for all, finish what we started. And because so many millions of people are counting on us, we will invest an additional $1 billion over the next decade to do exactly that.

Without a cure, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer - a devastating disease with physical, emotional, psychological and financial pain that can last a lifetime.
Without a cure, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer - and more than 1 million could die - over the next 25 years.
Without a cure, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer - and 10 million could die - over the next 25 years.

We had an Aunt pass away this past Monday to cancer. She was cognitively challanged (57 yrs old , with a 16 yr old mentality) not a bad thing one bit. Loving woman who made sure her mother received her meds timely. Mary was not feeling well shortly before Christmas 2006 and went to get checked. She had a large breast tumor and the cancer had spread to her bones. Her mother past away in April and she blamed herself saying she could have done more. Mary slowly went downhill, the cancer spread quick and like I said she past away last Monday.

thanks, not to take away from the topic, but it has been really tough on my mother in law. I hate to see this happen. Such a terrible disease!
