THE STORY:

 

On October 14, 2009 my life was forever changed when we lost my father, Rich, to his fight against Stomach Cancer.   Everyone who knew my father knew he had a laugh that was contagious.  He taught us to treat our friends like family and our family like friends. He  could make someone who just met him feel like they had known him for years. He could somehow relate to even those he had nothing in common with.  He taught me that life is yours to live & that happiness is a choice.  And on days where I feel lost without him, I remember he would want me to LIVE, To Love, And most of all to LAUGH. And while I do all those things, I also FIGHT. Fight in the hopes that other families will someday not have this battle with Stomach Cancer. I fight for awareness & for a cure  in hopes that someday other won't have to.

On Saturday 11/5 Val, Liam & I will be joining other families who have battled Stomach Cancer with someone they love.  It warms my heart to share such meaningful experiences with other families for such a worthy cause.  Beverly Haley wrote these beautiful words last year  about her husband, Larry ,that so perfectly sum up my father's fight as well.. "He (Larry) did not lose the fight. He won because it did not take away from him who he was, his humor, his joie de vivre, the desire to fight, the ability to love, to hope, to pray, to cherish his family and leave them each with something to fondly remember him by, and to celebrate every moment he had until God brought him home."

Please consider donating in memory of my father, Rich and the many other warriors who battle Stomach Cancer world wide.

Join us to bring awareness and raise money for No Stomach For Cancer, an organization researching a cure and treatments for stomach cancer.  Check out their website for more details about this fantastic organization.
