Lisa’s Legacy in Spain

posted on November 19, 2019

So here’s something I never saw coming. I learned recently that a Spanish publisher has purchased the rights to the Lisa’s Legacy Trilogy and will begin publishing the books in Spain starting next year. I suppose I should be used to it by now, but I still find myself being taken aback by the continued reach of this work. The breadth of Lisa’s legacy still surprises and pleases me. I make it a point to always take a copy of Lisa’s Story with me to a book signing because there will invariably be someone there looking for one. And now it looks like I’ll need to start brushing up on my high school Spanish for when my Spanish edition arrives.

Akron Marathon – Lisa’s Legacy Relay Team 2019

posted on September 28, 2019

The Lisa’s Legacy Relay Team ran in the Akron Marathon this morning. I want to publicly give a shout out to the team and thank them for running for the Lisa’s Legacy Fund. The Lisa’s Legacy Fund for cancer research and education was established seven years ago when Lisa Moore died in the strip, and, as I’ve said many times, it’s very gratifying to think that one of your characters can live on to battle cancer in the real world. I’m looking forward to the day when we no longer have to run to run to beat cancer, but, until then, if you’d like to help in the fight, you can go to the Lisa’s Legacy page on this site where you’ll find all of the information you need to do that. And thanks.

Funky Winkerbean 5k 2019

posted on September 9, 2019

Mother Nature smiled upon the Funky Winkerbean 5k in Mentor, Ohio last Saturday and we had weather that couldn’t have been more ideal for the run.

The proceeds from the run go to the Lisa’s Legacy Fund at University Hospitals in Cleveland, and the winners in the top three age groups got a cool print of one of the Lisa’s Legacy Run Sunday strips from Funky along with their medal.

Putting on a 5k run like this isn’t easy, and I’d like to thank the Mentor Rotary for all of the dedication and hard work that they put into the event.

All in all we had a great time and the Mentor Rotary’s dedication to the Lisa’s Legacy fund will insure that Lisa continues to reach out and do some real world good for cancer patients and their families.
