Sunday February 3rd, (Super Bowl Sunday) we will be participating in the Surf City Half Marathon in honor of our sweet and beautiful friend Diane Sorenson Beazley who was herself a Full and Half Marathon Finisher.  WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN US!
You can walk it. You can run it. You can crawl it if you have to. Maybe the Half Marathon seems intimidating, no worries, there’s a 5K as well! If none of this is up your ally, then please just come join us after (TBA) at a family friendly location to cheers and celebrate our Angel Diane who graced Heaven’s Gates on February 6th, almost 1 year before with Happy Hour Cosmos and Tasty Pepper Jelly Treats. Don’t worry, you’ll be home in time to enjoy the Super Bowl Festivities!
We realize that some of you may not be available that day, so thank you for donating to Leiomyosarcoma Support and Direct Research Foundation (LMSdr). LMSdr provides funds for Leiomyosarcoma research, promotes worthy clinical trials, and provides information, education and support for patients. This was the cancer that Diane suffered from, she also gained much hope through this website, interacting with other patients that were dealing with the same cancer. We encourage you to donate and share your “TEAM MOXIE” walk or run with others who may want to donate as well.
So, brush off those running shoes and start training! We’ll be making “TEAM MOXIE” t-shirts to wear on race day. It will be ALL THINGS DIANE – sunflowers and butterflies and color galore! Let’s make her proud!!
GOODNESS… don’t we all miss her and love her just as much today as the day she left us? So, what a great way to honor her memory. Contact us and say “I’M IN” so that we can keep track of how many “TEAM MOXIE” members we will have that day. It will be such a special day, you won’t want to miss out.

If you would like to make a donation in honor of  Diane Sorenson Beazley, please fill in the boxes to the right. 
Please note:
 your online receipt will not have the honoree’s name – however your name with the honoree will be listed in the THANK YOU DONORS page for the family to see.


About Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR)

Ryan Family

This fund was created out of love for VDiane Sorenson Beazley to help others win their battle with leiomyosarcoma by funding LMS specific research. Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR) raises donations for Leiomyosarcoma research and patient support.  We advocate directly with sarcoma researchers to study leiomyosarcoma. We offer the largest moderated support group online for leiomyosarcoma, where patients and loved ones get the latest LMS news and  personal support. The LMSDR’s website offers local support groups, details of what we do, the research we have funded and many resources for the Leiomyosarcoma community. The LMSe Alerts is our monthly newsletter, offering more updated clinical trials, news and community events. The Leiomyosarcoma Lifeline is our new blog, featuring patient stories and our well-known Long Term Thriver stories.

We collaborate with researchers and other organization to reach our mission and vision of finding treatments that will work. We have created the Leiomyosarcoma Tissue Bank for researchers to study our disease, the Leiomyosarcoma world for education and support at our Leiomyosarcoma patient conferences, in Denver, Colorado, San Francisco, California, New York City, New York, and Maui, Hawaii.  Please stay in touch with our website for more upcoming events sponsored by Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation.

Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research is an all volunteer organization which Diane Sorenson Beazley supported.  We are proud to have Patient Registry to collect data, and ran successful blood collections for study. We have brought patients and loved ones together from all over the minimal amount of expenses as possible, to ensure your money goes directly to funding promising research for Leiomyosarcoma specifically.  You can volunteer, put on fundraisers, promote LMS awareness and ask your employer for matched funds. Please consider making a donation and helping us Work, not wish, for treatments that will work for us. We have been a 501(C) (3) since 2006 and a tax-free charity.
