IN LOVING MEMORY OF RENA GOLDEN
Rena approached her diagnosis of lymphoma as she did with almost everything else in life: with a clear understanding of the issue and a determination to overcome obstacles.
Throughout her illness there were many unexpected and terribly unpleasant circumstances. At every turn Rena remained remarkably composed, fearlessly acknowledging each development with a positive attitude. She never complained and not once did she ever express even a morsel of self pity.
She endured every procedure and faithfully took all prescribed drugs, certain that eventually there would be a successful outcome.
Ultimately, the cancer cells that entered her central nervous system could no longer be controlled. As Rena’s oncologist delivered the terminal prognosis at her hospital bedside on March 8, 2013, she calmly accepted her fate and confidently said, “Don’t worry Doc, I’m sure in 20 years you’ll have a cure for this.” Rena was convinced a solution would be found, not for her but for others.
Let’s help fulfill Rena’s wishes in finding a cure.
