Theresa Tippie Moon

An Angel on Earth

Theresa was sent directly from God above
To come and share her laughter and genuine love
Placing smiles on every face
And blessing others with her amazing grace
A woman known for her character, class and style
And she could always captivate you with her warm smile
Her dazzling outward appearance was a mere start
Even more beautiful was her loving heart
Theresa was a dedicated servant for the Lord
Loved, admired and truly adored
A stranger never came across her path
Because her awesome spirit would always make you laugh
Theresa was a blessing to her siblings and friends
And gracefully maintained her strength until the end
A loyal, committed friend that’s true
A loving mother through and through
On earth she was just passing along
Singing the hymn of her Father’s song
Because God has some work in heaven for her to do
We love you so much, Tippie, and we know you knew©

About Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR)

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.This fund was created out of love for Theresa Tippie Moon, 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.

Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research is an all volunteer organization, which Theresa Tippie Moon supported.
