I recently gave a gift to support the cancer research program at Holy Cross. I felt it was a fitting tribute to a lovely woman that I knew who passed away from cancer recently. Now, I enjoy passing by the wall in the lobby of the cancer center and reading my friend's name on the wall. It's another way that her legacy will live on.
