Thank You

Hello Dolly Foundation

We would like to thank you for your very generous donation in memory of our mother and beloved, wife, Allyn.

Our mission is to celebrate the life and spirit of Allyn Sue Padawer Udell by funding opportunities that exemplify her compassion for others and love of the arts. Advancing both scholarship and research will create a legacy that began at Tulane University, where Ira met the love of his life Allyn Sue Padawer.

Supporting Tulane University’s pre-medical scholars program and advancing research and treatment of multiple myeloma will carry Allyn’s legacy into the future, improving the lives of others in her name.

Our mother fought her fight for over 21 years and throughout all that time she never gave up and always remained positive even though she lived in constant pain. She never once complained and always kept her infectious smile for all to share. When people came to visit her in the hospital, expecting to cheer her up, they actually left feeling uplifted themselves because of her ability to mentor them with their issues. She inspired them to live life to the fullest.

Multiple Myeloma was just something that she had to deal with. She never let it define who she was as a person and never let it stop her from doing everything she wanted to do and more. For her, each day was a blessing. By example, she showed everyone who came in contact with her that no matter what challenges or obstacles anyone might be dealing with they could live a full and happy life.

Your generous support means the world to all of us! We are humbled and honored that you have decided to help us in our quest.

With love, gratitude and appreciation,

Ira, Jared, Riki & Zachary Udell and Erin & Leigh Minsky
