are the friends and family members of Cynthia Solomon Holmes (my mother), who was
a healthy 52-year old woman who was stricken with this treacherous disease
called Leiomyosarcoma. Cynthia is yet another casualty of another war in which
is under-funded, under-manned and under-recognized. We who love her and miss
her will not rest until all other sufferers of LMS have a chance to live.
mission is to bring local and national attention to the importance of funding
research of this rare and aggressive cancer, without a cure. We strive to raise
awareness through vigorous and creative fundraising while utilizing every
possible media outlet, by reaching out to all families affected and providing
personalized assistance to fit their needs.
our lifetime, we have seen breast cancer go from a horrible and cureless
disease to a horrible but manageable, mostly curable disease. The only reason
this has become so is because the disease was so prevalent, killing our
mothers, daughters, sisters, wives and girl friends on such a frequent occasion
that a cure was an absolute must. The call was heard by many voices and people
from all walks of life gave their time and money to help. Research was funded and
a cure was found.
