Sarcoma Awareness Week (July 18-26)

From the Wife:
Zuma Beach in Malibu was great. It was windy in the morning but it was calm later on in the day. We set up our spot on the beach and into the water we went. Marco even got in the water twice, well three times if you count the time that he decided to be sneaky and attack DLP from behind to put her in the water.

You should have seen his face! He was determined to get her in the water...while she is screaming at the top of her lungs... Marco lunges backwards pulling DLP down with him, he lands flat on his back and was laughing so hard! Needless to say, DLP never landed in the water.

I was very happy to see Marco having fun and getting into the water...the smile on his face especially when he is feeling great brings a smile to all of our faces.

We all had a great time out at Zuma Beach we missed all of you and would have loved to see you all but we knew it was last minute.

Hopefully we can all get together soon. Mark your calendars for August 30th on a Sunday for the Oceans of Hope at Manhattan Beach, Ca. We'll cheer in the paddleboard racers coming in from Catalina to Manhattan Beach to raise money for the Sarcoma Alliance. We can make it another day at the beach. I will post more information about this event later to remind everyone. Enjoy the pictures!

Update: This is now week 5 of the Phase III Trail and all is well so far no side affects and no other changes. He will be having another CT Scan first week in August to see if there are any changes. So far all is well and Marco is feeling stronger and looking great, looking good.

Wow what a day. We drove to the other side of the world to get to Malibu Ca. It was worth the drive!! It was beautiful.

I wanted to tell you that we had a really enjoyable relaxing day by the beach eating eating, swimming, eating, swimming some more... get the picture? We were there all day. The family was really happy and free. I saw big smiles when we reached our spot on the beach. I saw slinky smiles as some of us dozed off into the warm sun.. then out of no where I saw Marco's sneakky sneak smile. He said..." Ya think Gianina wants to get wet? AHHH!! I looked at him get up and all I could say was wait let me get my camera...

It has been too long since I have seen Marco laugh that sneakky sneak laugh that starts off slow and then takes over.

It was last minute and I know that it was impossible to get everyone together. I jumped on the opportunity to have an adventure. I was overwhelmed that they were up for an adventure too. But imagine they were up for a great day at the beach. Marco Marie & Chini let loose and really enjoyed the beach and eachother. I am really happy to see them positive, happy, enthusiastic, encouraging about living life.

We all pray that each day will be a good day for the family but this day more than good it was Great!
