Message from Chi V. Dang, MD, PhD, Director, Abramson Cancer Center:

Dear Colleagues, Riders, Crew, and Generous Donors,

This past Saturday, October 11th, Dean Larry Jameson, Emily Whitehead, and her family greeted a crowd of hundreds of riders and their families for the Structure Tone Ride to Conquer Cancer at a very cold and rainy 7am—and off we went. The nearly 150-mile ride was intense, invigorating, cathartic, full of fun and fellowship, and, most of all, provided a tremendous sense of community, comradely, and personal accomplishment. Over 500 riders finished the Ride to benefit Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Fairmount Park with Madlyn Abramson, her daughter Nancy and her two children, Stephanie and Rachel, and many other family and friends of the riders cheering at the finish line. The Ride was phenomenal, and its success was a total team effort.

Thank you very much to all of our volunteers, staff, friends, family, and faculty for participating, helping, and contributing to the Ride. I want to thank our title sponsor, Structure Tone, and sponsor Ben Shein Law Offices. I thank Kevin Mahoney for his guidance and help with the event and Keith Kasper for rocking through the Ride as a participant. In particular, I want to thank all the team members and captains for their dedication. The medical team led by Drs. Linda Jacobs and Alvin Wang was phenomenally helpful for many riders in need of treatment or wound care, including me. The development staff was terrific and special thanks goes to Karrie Borgelt for making it a wonderful event. Click here to read Dr. Dang’s message in its entirety.

 1st Annual Super Steve Stroll, September 2012


Dear Ben,

Thank you so much for the Foundation’s support of the 1st Annual Super Steve Stroll held on Sunday, September 16, 2012 at Oakmont Fire Company in Havertown, PA. This event is in loving memory of Steve Tiberio who lost his battle to Mesothelioma on March 11, 2012. Our goal is to have a walk in Steve’s memory every year and to raise awareness and research money to find a cure for Mesothelioma. We continue to fight this disease and could not do so without the support of the Benjamin Shein Family Foundation. As a sponsor of he Super Steve Stroll, you supported us in raising over $6000 at our first event. All money raised is being used at Penn to further their research and to hopefully find a cure for Mesothelioma. 

Many thanks,

Katie C.

     Make My Day 5K Race, March 2010


Dear Ben,

You continue to amaze me. Thank you so much for your very generous donation to the “Kevin Cain Foundation”.

This is a truly worthy charity that is near and dear to my heart. The Cain Foundation helped Tom and I while we were in Boston. And they continue to help families battling cancer.

One hundred percent of your donation goes to helping families. Rose Cain gets every service donated to make the 5K a huge success each year.

Michael, Tommy, Kelly and I are proud to walk in memory of Tom and know that in turn we are helping others. You should be proud too. You have been a great friend to us and we deeply appreciate your support.

Thank you again.

 penn medicine      Hurricane Katrina, September 2005


Dear Ben:

It has come to my attention that you sponsored an expedition to Baton Rouge to assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Outreach from community leaders like you is so important, particularly in times of national crisis like the aftermath of Katrina. Each and every one of us should feel compelled to contribute to this relief effort; your leadership and the devotion of the physicians and nurses taking part in the expedition are extraordinary. Thank you, Ben.
