Doug Henderson III Memorial Fund was established
                             in honor of Doug Henderson III, who was diagnosed in
                             2002 with synovial sarcoma, a rare form of soft tissue
                             cancer. After a valiant fight against the disease, Doug
                             passed away on September 6, 2003. Doug approached
                             his battle with cancer with the same determination
                             that he approached everyday life. He gave 100% to
                             his fight, just as he did with his education, he career,
                             and his relationships with friends and family. His
                             family and friends made a commitment to continue
                             to make a difference in the fight against this disease.
                             In April 2004, a charitable fund in Doug’s name was
                             established to support various charities, including
