Hi, my name is Janelle Margolis and I am Bob Margolis' oldest daughter. One of my Dad's biggest achievements was his children. If you knew him well, we were all he spoke about. There's me, my brother Brian (the oldest), my sister Natasha, and my youngest sister, Alana.

My Dad fought a battle with cancer for 10 years having both Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and Head & Neck cancer. If you look up the word "strong" you'd see a picture of my Dad. He was so strong and such a fighter until the end. My Dad lost his fourth battle with cancer in September.

Alana started at University of Colorado in Denver this fall in the singer/songwriter program. My Dad's goal was to make sure his youngest daughter graduated from college. It's all he talked about. The day he found out that she got accepted was one of the happiest days of his life. He was so proud of her to be following in his footsteps with the love of music.

As a family, we are asking for your help to get Alana through college due to my Dad's passing as he was paying for her college tuition. Any amount is helpful and we will use the funds to help pay for Alana's college tuition, housing, and other expenses. 

The goal is for her to graduate in 2020 and we are determined to get her there, just as my Dad was. He will be right there next to her at graduation.

Myself, along with my family cannot thank you enough for any amount that you are able to donate to us. It means a lot to us, and most importantly, to our Dad that Alana gets to graduation and makes the most out of her 4 years at the University of Colorado.

This is such a good idea. It illustrates and demonstrates how a human community (a group of friends) can care for each other. It also helps our grieving for loosing someone we loved. We are almost halfway to our goal. Everyone should put in a little bit of effort to get just one or two other donations. By doing that, we can collectively achieve this awesome goal.
