We are writing to ask for your support and compassion.  It’s not often we will reach out like this; however, this cause has significant meaning to us.

Nancie Glanzrock joined Lohman Company in September 2008 as Executive Assistant.  Nancie is a Cancer Survivor – she fought and won her first battle with cancer in 2003-2004.  Cancer came back for another round.  In October 2008, she was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer.  Nancie has been waging the fight for her life ever since.  In April 2009, she had to resign from Lohman Company due to the severity of her treatments.   Nancie has endured more than most of us could handle.  She has survived 4 surgeries which included removing 3 ribs, part of her sternum and the reconstruction of her chest wall, over 200 rounds of chemotherapy, 4 thorocentesis procedures, extended medical treatments, travel to facilities in 3 different states, and so much more.  Through it all, Nancie has kept her sites on the finish line – to be cancer free.  She’s not there yet, but through the tumultuous years she has maintained faith that she can cross that finish line.

Right now, she needs our help.  While the physical and emotional toll has been extreme, the financial toll of the nearly 3 years of cancer treatment has been equally steep.  Nancie has spent a lifetime giving back to her communities, we’re asking the community to give to her to help defray the mounting medical bills.  To assist with the mounting financial burden, The Nancie Glanzrock Classic has been created.  This special event includes a golf tournament, luncheon and silent auction to be held on July 9, 2011 at The Foothills Golf Club.
