The staff of Alfred Penhaskashi, D.D.S. has committed to raise money in honor of Dr. Robert Haaz and in memory of those who have been affected by multiple myeloma. They have decided to “Walk for Bob” by participating in the Los Angeles Marathon (26.2 miles) on March 6, 2005, with proceeds to benefit the International Myeloma Foundation.
Dr. Robert Haaz passed away on August 30, 2004 after losing a courageous battle with multiple myeloma. His wife Susan, a daughter, two sons, a brother and his mother survive Robert. Robert loved being a periodontist and always made a special effort to connect with his patients. He started his practice in 1974 in Encino, and those who had the privilege of knowing and working with him still feel his loss.
If you would like to participate in the marathon and walk with this group, please call Valerie in Dr. Penhashkashi’s office for information (818) 788-7091. If you would like to make a donation in honor of this event, please contact Suzanne Battaglia at (800) 452-CURE or SBattaglia@myeloma.org
