Path to a Cure...
Those are the days that Drs. Ray Benza (Allegheny Hospital, Pittsburgh) and Bob Frantz (Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN) will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Their goal: to raise $100,000 for PHA research and patient-serving programs.
Today, with seven staff, we had a run through on ways we'll be able to help. Jess McKearin reported the web pages are up, as are the donation page and the Unity Walk page.
Some years ago, a doctor told me not to expect much from doctors financially. He said that his peers saw what they did with their patients every day as their contribution. It made sense, I guess, but that's not the way it is at PHA...and our community is strengthened by that.
