"In every change, in every falling leaf there is some pain, some beauty.
And that's the way new leaves grow." -- Amit Ray
A time for reflection.
As we embark upon the holiday season, we hope you will take a moment to reflect upon your year-end giving priorities and consider making a gift before  December 31 .  

Keep in mind that Tribute Gifts in honor of a loved one make perfect holiday gifts!

Finally, please accept our heartfelt gratitude to everyone for helping us to  fulfill our mission of fighting gastrointestinal cancers  and providing unique education opportunities to real estate students.
