Debbie Croxton has formed a fund-raising team calling themselves www.LouiseLegacyofHope.net. It is part of Angels Among Us that raises money to support the research in honor or memory of loved ones with brain cancer. I know it will help Debbie and her family members to feel like they can make a difference in someone else’s life while honoring Louise’s memory and showing their love for her. To help, please make a donation to Duke. You can also go to www.angelsamongus.org and click on “Team List” and scroll down to Louise Legacy of Hope and register for your donation. Their goal is $5,000. They have $100 so far.
