In Memory of Nancy Bergen

The CAL team mourns the loss of our dear team member, Nancy Ann Bergen, who passed away on September 29th after a 12 month battle with lung cancer. Nancy worked with many of our clients as a Customer Relationship Manager and was instrumental in planning our last CAL Connect 2010. Nancy will be remembered for her vivacious spirit and her sincere interest in people. Obituary Notice.

The CAL Team has decided to adopt the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation as our company charity, and you will see this mentioned in upcoming newsletters and events. Did you know – Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women, causing 30% of all cancer deaths. Even among people who never smoked, like Nancy.
