Hello, World Family!
Falcon here. I received this notice this morning, and I wanted to pass it on to everyone in the Falcon and Dove family. As you know, our beloved Randy Pausch, the CMU professor who, among other many talents developed the computer program Alice (that Dove did as a grade school student) was struck down by this cancer. This horrible cancer knocks down many wonderful souls every year, and any additional information that can be shared to help those directly affected by this... patients, family members, friends, caregivers...should attend this event to gain a greater understanding and updates on the progress being made to overcome this illness.

This is a FREE event; there is also one in Atlanta about 10 days later. Check the enclosed information below, and feel free to check out their website.

Stay strong, Brothers and Sisters!
Falcon and Dove
