We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to Kraig for his leadership over the past several years as the Chair of the Patient and Family Support Committee. Kraig will be stepping down from this role, but will continue to be an active member of the Rein in Sarcoma community.
Under Kraig’s leadership the committee successfully monitored the peer mentor program -matching mentors to newly diagnosed patients, planned supportive events for those affected by sarcomas, and collected donations and assembled care packages which are distributed to newly diagnosed sarcoma patients. The committee will continue these important activities and build on new opportunities.
Kraig will continue to be responsible for the luminary station at our signature event, Party in the Park. Luminaries are decorated by attendees in honor of survivors and patients, or in memory of a loved one lost to sarcoma. During the closing ceremony, we light the luminaries, and the name of each person being honored is read for all to hear.
Diagnosed in 1986, Kraig is now 35 YEARS cancer free from sarcoma! Thank you Kraig for your support and for inspiring others.
