In memory of Karen

(Karen and her husband Craig)
Lauren's best friend(Deana's) mom, Karen passed away on Saturday. She was diagnosed with uterine cancer in May, and quickly declined. Karen was like a second mom to my daughter, and I am very close to Deana. We'll miss Karen very much.

Here is a note from Lauren:

Hi everyone,
This upcoming Saturday I'm participating in Sunnybrook's Underwear Affair 10k run which funds life saving research for cancers like prostate, colorectal, ovarian, cervical and others that occur below the waist.

My best friend Deana Slater's mother, Karen McCullough, was diagnosed in earlier this summer with uterine cancer. Unfortunately it was very aggressive and Karen passed away at Sunnybrook Hospital early Sunday morning-I'm doing this run for Karen.

I've agreed to raise at least $400, but I've set my personal goal at $500. So I need your help! Would you please consider making a donation? Every bit counts.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Lauren
