1/ A story of family strength + resilience

Less than a yr ago Lux incredible COO Steve Brody had bad cough, got it imaged & in a week had a baseball sized tumor + 1/3 of his lung removed

The Lux family rallied around Steve + his family & he was at our Annual mtg weeks later...

2/ They reminded us of how fragile + vulnerable life is & to appreciate everyone + everything. We all felt so lucky Steve made it through.

Our hearts were smashed a few weeks ago when bad luck struck + Steve’s youngest son Jacob at 5 was found with a neuroblastoma...WTF?!...

3/ Abby + Steve are warrior parents. The kind we all’d be lucky to have. They immediately mobilized every top scientist, researcher, VC into action.

Abby has a cathartic blog as outlet that stopped my heart with its unrelenting raw angry empowered beauty
