Shortly after her initial diagnosis, Thekla was referred to Bonnie Addario as a person who could help. Bonnie and all the people at the Foundation were in Thekla's corner during her entire fight with cancer--getting referrals to the best doctors, identifying potential trials, keeping abreast of the latest research, and understanding the questions to ask and how to be one's own best advocate.
The Foundation has dedicated itself to providing and promoting the advocacy, education and research that is necessary to combat this terrible disease. Bonnie, the Foundation, and the work they do were very important to Thekla, and we'll appreciate all the support we can generate! Together we can make a difference!
This is a donation raised at our annual "Talk Like a Pirate" Day party. We've all been touched by cancer (or smacked in the face), and we wanted to do a little to help the cause.
Thanks to Thekla for being such an inspiration!
I'm grateful to be able to do this small thing for Thekla and Steve.
This donation is in memory of my dear wonderful friend Thekla Hammond.

To the memory of Thekla Hammond, my dear friend, who was an inspiration both in the vibrancy of her life, and the courage of her dying.

Thekla is a 20 year love story with her art. I am grateful I was finally able to meet her and all the times we share.
Alex and I were so honored to spend "cocktail hour" with Thekla and Steve shortly before her passing. It particularly pleased us that SHE was so pleased with one of her paintings (we have four in total) as she revisited it on our wall! She has left a huge hole in our hearts but we are so glad we knew her. Love to Steve. Judith and Alex
