FOR THE LOVE OF COLYN: A Rockville Centre Lions Club Partnership Fundraising Event

Colyn Russell, of Island Landscape in Oceanside, was taken in for emergency brain surgery on April 16, 2003. The majority of a large lemon sized tumor was removed and diagnosed as Glioblastoma Multiforme, the most aggressive and deadly of all brain cancers with a prognosis of six months to one year.

Colyn and his wife Elena, a breast cancer patient herself, as well as all who love him, are not willing to accept that there is no hope. If anyone can beat the odds Colyn can. His spirit, his deep faith, his unwavering trust, his love of God, his physical strength and his peace can help him through. Colyn’s battle against this disease will nevertheless be his greatest challenge. The few documented survivors have the arduous task of enduring multiple surgeries, aggressive chemotherapy’s, various radiation techniques and clinical trials, combined with physical, spiritual and nutritional support programs.

In an effort to ease the financial burden of an aggressive treatment approach with the most advanced level of care often not covered by today’s structure of HMO’s, the Rockville Centre Lions Club in partnership with friends and family will conduct a fundraising event on November 20, 2003 at the Coral House in Baldwin from 7 – 11:30 p.m. Ticket price is $75 and includes a premium open bar, a full dinner buffet, dessert, live music, auctions and raffles. We ask you to join in support and help fight for life. Tickets can be purchased by calling Gloria Paesano at 516-593-1969 or Atlantic Medical at 516-872-5073.

Any and all contributions, or donations of services and goods for auction or raffle would be greatly appreciated. Please help us help him. Together we can help Colyn fight.

All donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to the Rockville Centre Lions Endowment Fund, Inc. with Colyn written on the memo line and sent to PO Box 892, Lynbrook, NY 11563

Glioblastoma Multiforme. Remember the name. Help fight for a cure. A portion of proceeds FOR THE LOVE OF COLYN will be donated to research and The Musella Foundation, an invaluable resource of help and information .
