Roar For a Cure!

Dear Friends,

For nearly three years we have been following the difficult journey of our close friend Meredith Israel-Thomas. Hundreds of us have joined her on what has been a very challenging road not just for her but for her loving family as well. It has been a dark road filled with bumps, obstacles and hurdles that is difficult to define in words. Her family and her friends have been the light that has guided her. The love that she has for her daughter Niomi and husband Gary is far stronger than the disease that has attacked her. We have shared tears and laughter with her, and yet many of us have never even met. But because of our love for Meredith and our friendship to her, we are all connected in a special way and will be forever connected because of Meredith.

Meredith has done so much for so many of us. She has made many of us rethink our life’s purpose. She has put so much in perspective for the thousands she inspired. And so, after much talk and thought over the past few months we have decided to give back to Meredith. She told me last year over lunch that she would give anything to have one night back in Harry’s at Syracuse. When she was young and wild she used to dance on the bar to Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” or to The Four Seasons “Oh What A night”. Her blond hair flowing back-n-forth as she rocked the night away. I often say, “It is how we face obstacles that define us”. Meredith has faced her obstacles with courage, bravery and a will that has inspired so many around her. The cancer that attacked her body has only strengthened her spirit and she is stronger than any person that I have ever met. I am honored and humbled to call her my friend.

So friends, the time has come for us to reunite or to meet for the first time. On behalf of my good friend Josh Sagman and our fellow Syracuse “Old School” Alumni, you are invited to Roar For A Cure with Meredith and go back in time on March 9th from 5-8 PM at Jake’s Dilemma on the Upper West Side. We are making it easy for everyone by bringing Harry’s to NYC. Now let’s get ready to ROAR the only way we know how, and let’s do it for our friend- Meredith. Be Brave and Roar For a Cure until one is found!

We look forward to seeing you on March 9th. All proceeds raised that night go to Meredith’s medical fund. If you can not attend, please go to www.miles4meredith.org to donate.

Best,

Dave and Josh
