Michelle Blanchette Lowe

Michelle Blanchette Lowe lost her battle on March 12, 2012.
Her family with continue to support LMSdr and finding a cure.

April showers bring May flowers…

In late April 2009 my cousin, Michelle Blanchette Lowe, was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma. Coming from a large family we all supported her in this time of need. Following surgery our hopes, prayers, and attitudes are high, not only for her but for all of those with LMS.

Five years early she married Scott Lowe in a fairy tale wedding on Cape Cod. With a trolley for transportation and pictures at the beach it was a perfect April day.

Ten years early we cruised the Caribbean with family and friends twenty deep. The drink of the day, games by the pool, and the most delicious meals you could imagine.

Thirteen years early she became the God Mother to my daughter Megan. I could not ask for anyone better.

This year our April was full of showers, not unlike the year we lost our grandfather or one other when we lost our uncle much too young. We look to May to see the flowers bloom and her too, for we know in our hearts that Clarence and Glenn were there with her through these recent tough times when we needed them to be, an we are here for her now.

Thank you for supporting the LMSarcoma Research Foundation, with your help some day we will find a cure.

About Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR)


This fund was created out of love, 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 leiomyosaroma. We offer the largest moderated support group online for leiomysarcoma, 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 Patient Registry to collect data, and ran successful blood collections for study. We have brought patients and loved ones together from all over the 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. We are proud to have 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 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.
