This week we have lost yet another part of our CRF Family. December 15th our friend and Board member , Robert Diedrich lost his battle. On behalf of the Edelman - Gardner Cancer Research Foundation, we take a pause and thank Bob for his incredible support and friendship and our deepest sympathy for his family.
It is difficult for all of us to see someone so close to the cause be taken away. There are moments when even I look and say we didn't do enough, why aren't we further ahead? We have lost many and you have to really dig deep to look for the positiive. Let me leave you with this...
When you look around we have had some successes. I look at some others like our Helen or my friend Curt and realize that because we didn't quit when it hurts so much to lose our friends, our projects continued and some good results came out of it.
So Bob, for you, we will continue the fight in your honor. We will do it because you believed in what we were doing and because you wouldn't want us to quit.
