Welcome to Our Lung Cancer Walk for Hope Team Page!

In honor of our beloved leader, Molly Chernofsky, z"l, on Sunday, November 4, 2018, our team will
join hundreds of other members of the Long Island community at the CancerCare 16th Annual Lung
Cancer Walk for Hope. We will come together with a unified goal to raise funds and increase
awareness about lung cancer and CancerCare's National Lung Cancer Program. As we walk, we will
celebrate survivors and remember loved ones.

Last year was our second team Walk. It was so moving to see so many others affected by this
devastating disease, that our team was inspired to continue our mission again for future years to
help families through the toughest times of their lives. Please be sure to check out our photographs
from previous years' Walks!

We hope to increase our impact with an this year, raising an even larger donation than the $4,000
we raised last year.

Molly was very active in Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, having served as Regional
President of the BQLI Chapter, and as Recording Secretary of the international organization before
her life was cut short, just 5 weeks after her diagnosis. In July 2017, Molly was lovingly
remembered at our WLCJ Convention in Arlington, VA at the Installation ceremony of our current
international President, Margie Miller. Molly’s legacy continues to be remembered by so many. We
hope to expand participation to other synagogues in the BQLI Region this year and hope you will
consider joining us!

Our team name was inspired by Molly's first published article in our Temple Beth Sholom Bulletin
column called "Sisterhood Scoop":
“You are probably wondering what a scoop of Sisterhood tastes like. Is it sweet as chocolate or nutty
like pistachio or just perfect like vanilla and chocolate on a sugar cone? Sisterhood has lots of
flavors to entice you. Some are your favorites and some are brand new. We welcome you to try them all!"
Molly's tongue and cheek humor inspired all of us to unite as a community. Molly served as our
guiding light, and rose as a kind and compassionate leader of our synagogue and then as part of the
BQLI Chapter of WLCJ. We will honor her memory by joining together for this act of lovingkindness.
Thank you for joining the Walk of Hope, or for sponsoring someone who is a registered walker.

Together we can lick lung cancer, one scoop at a time!
