Have a heart

The photo of the handsome guy on the left is my friend Peter.  I've know him for about 20 years now, and we have weathered together bad dates, divorces, deaths, critical illnesses, marriages, births, work woes and more.  We spoke at each other's weddings and embarrassed each other on elevators and in fine restaurants.  Every year, we make outrageous cards for each other's birthdays and we try to have lunch together whenever we can. I adore Peter.

Over five years ago, Peter's husband called me to tell me that Peter was in the hospital with a glioblastoma, one of the deadliest brain cancers there is.  Peter, who believes everything is possible, beat it.  Miraculously, there is no sign of the cancer after five years, and Peter started this foundation for research. Please consider donating, and if you are in the NYC area, you may want to come to this!

Thursday, May 14th, The Salzano-Smith Foundation for Brain Tumor Research presents Hats Off To Dance at The Venetian, with cocktails, special live performances, a four course meal and dancing.  Plus super prizes.  It's only $40 for dinner, $30 for a donation. For more info, you can email me at carleavitt@hotmail.com.
