In Beatriz's memory - support #TeamGilda

Beatriz Perez-Lopes was a warrior. Brave, constant, inimitable. Passionate about life, her family, her friends, and her work, Beatriz lived more in 55 years than most live in a long life. She fought breast cancer with optimism and insight. She was a star, with a radiant smile and the most generous of spirits - always there for a talk and a hug. When we lost her on June 3, we were broken. We miss her madly.

In Beatriz's memory, Nora, her sister, and Susan, her friend, will walk and run the course of the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 1, 2020. We will do so as members of #TeamGilda, with all donations here going to Gilda's Club NYC. Gilda's Club provides free support, education, and empowerment for cancer patients and their loved ones. Beatriz believed intensely in the value of all these things. She would like this. She also loved to walk, finding it healing; and we will too. 

Thank you for your support.
