From Erin Jacobson:

In 2014, my mom Sandy was diagnosed with Stage IV, metastatic, neuroendocrine cancer.  

Although my mom knew the prognosis was poor, she faced her time with cancer in the bravest, most positive, and graceful way. She faced treatments, multiple surgeries, procedures, and hundreds of needle sticks with strength and without complaint. Through it all, she was determined to do whatever she could to get better.

My mom refused to let cancer get her down and she did her best every day to continue with her life as normally as possible. She was almost always in a good mood and served as an inspiration to others.  

Neuroendocrine cancer took her body in 2015. My mom wanted others to be helped so that they didn't have to suffer with cancer. My mom was so selfless, always looking out for others. It would be a wonderful gift to her that someone else can be helped in her name.

Join the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation for a night of delicious fun! CFCF board member, Jonathan Soroff, will be Anna’s Taqueria’s featured celebrity burrito roller on February 19th.

Anna’s Taqueria, Boston’s beloved burrito joint, rolls for a cause in 2013 by enlisting a different local celebrity each month to prepare its signature West Coast-style burritos in support of area charities. Hosted monthly at Anna’s Harvard Street store, the rolling series invites guests to give back to local organizations by paying $10 for their celebrity-rolled burrito, with the entire cost going toward the charity of the roller’s choice.
