Neuron Mirror has now raised over $10,600.00   for the Lustgarten Foundation (for research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer).   Michael Walsh and I had set our goal at $10,000.

It took three years from publication in 2014 to the fulfillment of our goal. By 2016 the Neuron Mirror outreach had raised in sales of the poetry book and small donations over $8,000.00 for the Lustgarten Foundation. Then a donation of $1,000.00 to the Lustgarten Foundation from a poet friend and his wife, inspired by the accomplishment of the Neuron Mirror outreach, increased the money raised to over $9,000.00. A friend on Shelter Island, who had bought Neuron Mirror in the past, surprised me with a donation of $400.00.

Finally a poetry contest in the fall of 2017 to benefit the Lustgarten Foundation, publicized on the Lustgarten website, raised $825.00. More donations before the end of the year raised the total to over $10,600.00, to close the fund-raising efforts.

Michael would be pleased. So, too, the five people who are on the dedication page of Neuron Mirror: Helen Shields, my mother, and four poets: Robert Long, Siv Cedering, Diana Chang, and Antje Katcher.

Books will still be available for sale and all monies will still go to the Lustgarten Foundation; most of the remaining books will be donated to libraries and colleges.

Best to all who have helped and may yet help,
Virginia Walker
