Throughout my life, I have been blessed with so much, and I always felt a strong need to give back. The truth is…I would walk away from my volunteer work feeling more fulfilled than the people I was helping.

–Lynnie Isaacs Palan z”l

The family of Lynnie Isaacs Palan, Nishmah and the J invite you to commemorate the life of an inspiring woman and celebrate the day Lynnie loved most…her birthday. Join us in a spectacular display of love and hope in honor of Lynnie and our commitment to those in need. We will be lighting up the field with hundreds of wish lanterns in a fundraising effort to support our community facing cancer.

Lynnie was a pioneer and leader of both Nishmah: The St. Louis Jewish Women’s Project and Sharsheret Supports St. Louis, a collaborative project of Nishmah and the national, not-for-profit Sharsheret organization. Proceeds from Lynnie’s Light for Life will ensure Sharsheret Supports is there for women and families in all stages of a breast or ovarian cancer journey—from understanding one’s hereditary risk to grappling with a diagnosis to undergoing treatment and managing life post-treatment. With your help, Sharsheret Supports saves and changes lives.
