Legacy 2011

“With each year, each month and each day, there are new breakthroughs and possibilities in the fight against cancer.” Those were my wife Stefanie’s words, and they have given me the strength and determination to carry on her dream of ending this terrible disease. I am grateful to each and every one of you for joining me in continuing Stefanie’s legacy of hope. I am thrilled to announce that Spielman Funds reached $9.1 million this year. This is an outstanding achievement and it is because of your generous support that we have reached this milestone.

With your help, we have made tremendous progress in research and treatments for breast cancer, and I am pleased to share the discoveries that are underway. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to see first-hand what the doctors and researchers are doing with the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. I am amazed by the groundbreaking advancements that are being made in developing new drugs, identifying new drug targets and supporting new ways to image and treat breast cancer. This research gives me every reason to believe that we can someday find a cure for cancer right here at Ohio State.

Progress is happening and it would not be possible without the continued support from our Community Partners and corporate donations. In the past fiscal year, our communities organized more that 180 events and donated more than $1 million to the Spielman Funds. These fundraisers are organized and supported by dedicated individuals and companies in the community who generously give of their time and talents to implement successful events and initiatives. All the money raised through these initiatives goes directly to support the research and patient care that is making a difference in the lives of cancer patients and survivors. Thank you to all of our Community Partners and donors for your heartfelt efforts and contributions to this cause.

Fortunately, I have been part of many great teams during my life and I am humbled to be part of a team that will one day find a cure for cancer. Thank you for joining my team in this fight against breast cancer.

God bless,
