We are very pleased to announce that Connie Dow has accepted the position of Administrative Assistant.  Many of you already know Connie as she has been a RIS Volunteer for many years.  She has recently retired from the position of Director at Oak Meadows and is now going to help us further our sarcoma mission.  You will meet her at some of the committee meetings, at activities and as the first contact for new volunteers and patients.  Connie has had a lot of experience and will be of assistance to Rein in Sarcoma in many ways.  Connie lives with her partner, sarcoma survivor, Allan Swartz and their new puppy (her other retirement project).  Please welcome her when you see her.

Unfortunately gaining Connie means we are losing Laura Gossett who has served us in the position in many ways.  Even though she will be spending more time on her family we are so pleased that she is still going to volunteer for us.  Her particular interest is in supporting patients and their families and she will remain on the Patient and Family Support Committee.  When you see her please thank her for the many hours of work she has done on behalf of all of us.
