Welcome to my fundraising page! In memory of Mary.
Once in awhile, in an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale . . ."
We met on March 14, 2007 and married October 4, 2008. Mary was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in May 2016 and passed away September 24, 2018.
"I wish I could turn back the clock. I'd find you sooner and love you longer . . ."
Life ended far to soon for this beautiful and wonderful woman who was my wife, lover, best friend and soulmate. She was also a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, great aunt and a friend to many. She is dearly missed by all of us.
During the last 2 1/2 years of her life, Mary underwent 3 surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, numerous other cancer treatments and unrelenting pain. She remained a trooper and fought till the bitter end...always believing the disease would be conquered and she would be allowed to live the rest of her life in dignity, peace and happiness.
Our story is echoed by that of so many others. This disease wreaks havoc on the lives of people . . . their families, friends, and so much more.
For me, my life continues, but my grief will never end. I will adjust and move on in time, because Mary wanted me to do that. But I want her memory to live on, I want her life and her story to be told. I want people to know about the many organizations that work tirelessly in an effort, not only to find a cure, but to care for, nurture and offer comfort for the patients and loved ones who endure this disease.
Hence, the journey I embark on...a cycling trip that will serve several purposes for me personally, but also as a fundraiser for the many organizations involved. They need their story told too, and they need our continued support to ensure this fight continues.
I hope that you will follow me on my journey. I believe it will be impactful and meaningful, turning this tragedy into a beautiful legacy for Mary and all of those whose lives mean so very much to all of us.
