A Message From Executive Director Laura Rutledge

As many of you know, Carley, our 26 year old daughter, relapsed again on September 24th with her battle with Ewing sarcoma.

After two emergent spinal surgeries to remove the primary tumor, she is in treatment and gaining strength every day.

The outpouring of love, prayers, and support have lifted our family and allowed us to focus on Carley and her healing. We are incredibly grateful to each of you during this time.

Although my focus is back on the front line, the work of RCF continues in full force. Our staff, Brenda Lammers, Business Manager and Carley’s Closet Coordinator, Carolyn Roberts, Development Director and Adrienne Stephens, Community Events and Engagement Manager, are committed more than ever to fulfill our mission and continue the daily work to help our young adult cancer patients.

Our Board, with Kyle Kight as our President, are leading the foundation into our second decade with strength, purpose and vision. I am more personally committed than ever to press on toward a cure for pediatric/young adult sarcomas.

Please join me in this pursuit-until our work is complete.

– Laura
