A Message from my Daughter....

Mike & Alex in HS-good friends
Alex & Dad
My newly graduated daughter , Alexandra, is a team captain this year from Towson Univ. for the American Cancer Society's  Relay for Life. She says...

"I want to invite you to join me in the fight against cancer by making a donation in support of my efforts."   ............

"My Reason to Relay

I relay for my dad, who was diagnosed with lung cancer back in 2006.At that point it had spread to his brain and he had to have surgery. For a long time he went through the standard radiation and chemo sessions. He had been in remission once, but the cancer came back. As of right now he is off radiation and chemo treatments and is on a natural medicine that has drastically improved his condition, although he still battles with the lung cancer.

Along with my father and many family members who have passed, I relay for my friend Michael P. who passed away in 2005 from brain cancer. Mike was one of my good friends in high school and an all around great guy who will always be missed.

I am joining people around the world....
