Welcome to Robin's Page for Team Paula
You might know that I promised my dear friend and colleague, Paula Van Riper, that I would continue to participate in the Miracles for Myeloma 5K that she helped to begin 6 years ago. The first year I particpated, she and I walked together, the second year, she was unable to walk and the pup and I walked for her, at her request, and were honored to do so. Sadly, now the pup and I walk in her memory. But! If you knew Paula, you know it's not just sadness that inspires me to walk! I walk for her tenacity, for her friendship, for her spirit and for her strong desire to find a cure! Scientific progress made during the years Paula lived with Mutiple Myeloma allowed her to do just that - to live! Please help me fulfill my promise to my friend and consider donating today.
This year, I also walk for another dear friend and colleague, Cheryl Robinson. In an ironic twist of events, Cheryl was Paula's first Administrative Assistant at Rutgers and we all worked together for several years. Cheryl was diagnosed this past year and has had sucessful treatment and is in remission. We want to keep it that way. Your donation can help!
