Dear Family and Friends,
June 6, 2011 will forever be etched in our memories. It was when Jeffrey Guyer passed away. He was our beloved son, brother, husband and friend. He was an amazing 30 year old young man, full of life, already so accomplished and with so much still to give. He was taken away much too soon by a very rare form of sarcoma which accounts for 1% of all cancers. When Jeffrey was first diagnosed, and throughout his long year of chemotherapy, surgeries, clinical trials and pain, he worked relentlessly to start fundraising to help raise money for sarcoma research. That first year he raised over $100,000. Before he passed away, he asked that we continue his fundraising so maybe just one person's life can be saved. We have raised over $350,000; however this is not nearly enough funding to carry out the necessary research studies that will help to one day find a cure to this devastating cancer. We are asking for your help. We realize that everyone has their favorite charity, their own family member who has died from something terrible, their own passionate cause. We are not asking you to run or walk in a 5K race or bake cookies or cakes for a bake sale or buy a fancy new outfit for a charity event. We are asking that you give however big or small in memory of Jeffrey. We have started a fund at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston which is an amazing institution dedicated to the treatment and research of all kinds of cancer. A simple click to the following link will ensure that all donations will go directly to the Jeffrey Allen Guyer Sarcoma Research Fund.
