We are all saddened, in shock, paralyzed with disbelief. For many, this will be our outlet to taking Tamara’s fight against Leukemia forward and honor her memories and struggles against this terrible disease that robbed the world of an incredible soul.
If you are interested in joining her cause, come back and check in, write something, plan something, do something epic.
The mission of the Team T Foundation for Leukemia Awareness will be three-fold:
- Support scholarships for students at her beloved Virginia Tech, whose lives have been affected by leukemia
- Raise awareness in the greater community about the issues leukemia patients face, and their need for our support
- Help those who are presently suffering by making life a little easier on the 9th floor at Duke Hospital, where Tamara spent much of the last nine months of her life
Structurally, the paperwork to establish her Foundation with the state of North Carolina and 501(c)3 public charity status with the IRS will be filed on Monday, August 16th.
Time to go to work and put some of this frustration to positive use in a way that would honor our T !
