BENEFITING: No Stomach For Cancer
This is a fundraiser to create awareness and help find a cure for stomach cancer. My father was unaware he had this disease; he went to the doctors on Wednesday, September 12th with stomach pains and was admitted into the hospital. He didn't want them contacting his family as he thought he would be fine in a couple of days. By Friday he was placed in an induced coma, I was contacted on Sunday morning and was in Ireland along with my sister by Monday morning, his other two daughters arrived Wednesday morning at 6am. My father waited for all of us to arrive and say our farewells, along with love and gratitude for the father he was. He passed away on Wednesday, September 19th at 11:10am.
This disease has taken a great man and our hearts are forever broken. For our father, we want to help find a cure for this deadly and silent killer.
