Raffle for a Cause: Dr. Michael Goldman

September 11, 2010

I often do giveaways some for a cause and some just because.  This month I am doing it for something that is true to my heart.  Jeff Goldman, son of Dr. Michael Goldman, posted something that caught my eye on a popular social networking site.  He said, “Please donate in honor of my father.”  I thought, this I have to do… Dr. Goldman was a personal friend of the family and my surgeon.  He conducted 4 successful surgeries on me, all pro-bono.  That’s just the kind of man he was.  He knew what had to be done and thought and worked with his heart.

As a surgeon, his specialty was in head/facial reconstruction.  I recall a time when Michael was telling me about the most complex surgeries he performed and the pride and joy was seen through his eyes, even though he was ill at the time.  Michael never let his cancer bring his spirits down.  He was always smiling and happy to be around loved ones.

Sadly, Dr. Michael Goldman passed at age 57, on June 3, 2006.  He was an amazing husband, father of 2, son, friend and surgeon.  Lindsay will be running, in the Chicago Marathon, in his memory on October 10th, 2010.  Please donate for a cause.  We will be raffling the amethyst swarovski heart and the green pearl necklace, both by AJ Designs.  The green pearl necklace is the last piece of jewelry Michael bought for his wife, from AJ Designs, before he passed.

Purchase 1 ticket for $10 or 2 for $15 to be entered in the raffle for the heartPurchase more than 2 tickets and be entered in for the necklace.  Be sure to enter “AJ Designs” in the comment box to be entered in the raffle.  Last day to donate is October 9th, as the winner will be announced via email and/or phone on October 10th, 2010.
