The Geri Project

The Geri Project is in memory of Geri Loew Given, a wonderful wife, mother and teacher.  Geri was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma (LMS) in 2007 and lost her battle with the disease two years later (Geri’s Bio – PDF)As a tribute to Geri, her family and friends led by her daughter, Lindsey Moran, decided it was time to make a real impact in the fight against LMS.  In collaboration with the The Betsy Project in Dallas, The Geri Project was born.

In the last two years, The Betsy Project has raised over $400,000 to begin a specialized research project at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX – the first ever of its kindLed by Medical Oncologist Dr. Joseph Ludwig, this effort is already underway working directly with patients who have LMS to biopsy and profile their specific tumor cells – research that will lead to more effective drug therapies.

We hope that with the help from donors like you, The Geri Project can make a big impact in funding additional research, research that not only contributes to the development of more effective forms of treatment for LMS but for other forms of sarcoma as well.

The Geri Project is funded 100% by individual donations – that means YOU can make a direct impact on this ground breaking sarcoma research, YOU can be the reason why LMS is getting the attention it needs and deserves. Your donation will ensure that The Geri Project is able to provide the funding necessary to support the important research happening at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas right now!
