Lisa’s Legacy Continues

posted on June 21, 2009

A few weeks back, I got to take part in an event that will remain for a long time as a very special moment in my career. University Hospitals in Cleveland held a topping out ceremony for their new Cancer Hospital, and, as a part of that event, I got to draw a picture of Lisa on the final girder put into place. This wasn’t as hard for me as it might be for some other cartoonists since I work on steel sheets at home and all of my work is sent in that way. The mailing costs are back-breaking, but it left me well suited to the task.

I won’t go into all of the details here, but, if you want to read about it, it’s posted along with cool pics under the Lisa’s Legacy Fund section of this site. So Lisa will not only be a physical presence in this new structure, but, more importantly, it’s in this building where Lisa will help to fund the cancer research and education that will be taking place there in the future.

Work with the Lisa’s Legacy Fund is ongoing with a 5K Lisa’s Legacy Race scheduled to take place in Clevelands’s University Circle in the Fall. Part of my ongoing rehab from my accident is targeted at making sure that I’ll be one of the runner’s taking part. As it draws closer I’ll be filling you in on all of the details, and, with a little luck, I hope to see a lot of you there.
