I’m going to walk for Pat and Jack

Two April’s ago, my grandfather died from a tumor attached to his tailbone. He and I had traveled around Ireland together in 2003 and I miss him.

A number of years ago, my grandmother fought intestinal cancer. She won, but the disease left her frame thin, weak and unprepared for the nutritional issues she faced until she died, this past summer, very suddenly.

This year, I’m joining the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

I’d love your support. Even a dollar would be appreciated. My personal fund raising website is below.

    I’m seeing this after the fact – so congrats on slamming your fundraising goal!! I’m sure it was an awesome event. Great job, and thanks for walking and raising money – cancer is such a terrible disease.
