Oceans of Hope
Unfortunately, the fam couldn't make it to Manhattan Beach last Sunday because of the Wife's possible hip surgery. Treading through sand did not exactly sound like fun after the MRI results came in. Fortunately, ODAT was able to make it. She provides her report below:
one day at a time said...
"I attended the Ocean of Hope Event this weekend in Manhattan Beach where I had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people from the Sarcoma Alliance Organization. Even though I was there for only a short amount of time, I had the opportunity to speak to some of the volunteers and board members of this wonderful organization. I had a chance to share Marco's courageous experience fighting soft-tissue sarcoma and his continued determination to beat this.
Two people that stood out in this event was Dave Murphy, board member of the organization whose wife had sarcoma and Marites Tullius. They both took the time to listen to my story and offered me words of encouragement and support. This event has done alot to open my eyes to this disease. Even though it is something that we never expected or ever wanted for our wonderful brother, Moshura, we hope that organizations like this are available to help him get through this."
