Tobias and Family

Losing a Buddy to Cancer

Tobias Rosenberg was one of the many friends who joined Simon for his Celebration of Life Party on July 1, 2004. Simon spent most of the party seated in his reclining lawn chair. He handed out gifts and interacted with his guests. He was on a constant infusion of dilaudid (a narcotic) to control pain from his tumors. Simon's classmates were well aware of Simon's pump because we had discussed it and demonstrated it in class back in May. At the party, Tobias and Mary (Simon's mom) had this beautiful conversation:

Tobias: "I feel funny when I see that pump."
Mary: "What do you mean?"
Tobias: "It makes me feel quivery, looking at it."
Mary: "Why do you feel that?"
Tobias: "Because I feel bad about Simon having cancer."
Mary: "We all feel that way."

Donor List as of September 2, 2005

We are touched and honored by the generous donations to Simon's Memorial Fund from around the world. Below is an initial list of donations that we know have been received either at the First Unitarian Church in Salt Lake City or at the Calvert Giving Fund. If you have made a contribution but do not see your name listed here, please notify us by emailing Your gift is probably in process, but we'll be sure to check on the status for you.

We also extend our thanks to those people who have given in Simon's memory to other organizations. For those who have given to the Alex's Lemonade Stand fund, we are humbled to report that Alex's fund has made a $1,000 grant to Simon's Memorial Fund in recognition of amazing fundraising done in Simon's name. Alex's fund supports pediatric cancer research, and her family feel that the inspiration of Simon's life and his Memorial Fund further that cause, albeit outside the laboratory.
