HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!


Happy Father's Day!

Dad, you are the best hands down. No one can compare. I am so proud to have you for a dad. My mom sure knows how to pick em'. You have done such a great job raising Matthew and I (with help from my mom). I don't think anyone has ever had a dad that was so caring, modest, strong in heart, most intelligent, and a tad crazy. But I'm glad that it's Matthew and myself that have you.
Thank you. Thank you for always being there for me when I need you. Thank you for giving me the opportunity go explore new places, and giving me the motivation to do things. Also Thank you for entertaining me for the last (almost) 16 years. I have learned a lot dance moves from you, most of which I may never use out in public. You always know how to make me laugh with your silliness. Although we have our ups and downs I know that no matter what you will always be there for me. I appreciate all you do, thanks dad. Happy Father's Day.

Happy Father's Day! Dad....Thank you for all the things you have done for me. For taking me places for getting 100% on my tests. Wetting me wth the hose, even when I don't want to get wet, but it's ok I like it... I guess. Oh and for letting me use your computer all the time. I love you a lot!

Happy Father's Day!

Handsome,

The Greatest Dad EVERRRRRRR! I love that you are the dad that everyone would want to have as their own but I am lucky and proud to have you as our kids DAD. All I wanted for my kids was someone who would spend time with their kids, weather it be hanging out or just sitting watching a TV Show and appreciate the little things in life. You have always been their for them and that is something they cherish. I love you for being the GREATEST DAD EVER!! You know if means a great deal to me when I can say that. Thank you for all you do for our kids.

Cancer Survivor Day at City of Hope Today

Today at City of Hope they held their 3rd Annual Cancer Survivor Day. This year it was ALOHA Style, they decorated the Resource Center all out in Hawaiian Themed booths. As we entered all the Survivors were greeted and had metals given to them with the City of Hope logo on them. All of us were given leis. We took a pic which will be placed in the City of Hope scrapbook.

This morning Marco didn't want to attend this event he didn't think it was something to celebrate I suppose it could be true but I would like to think that it's a day that we celebrate the courage and the tough fight that he as well as million of others have to go through for NO REASON at all. It's a day to see how many other survivors have gone through hell and have fought to come and say I am a SURVIVOR!

This is a big deal... this celebration is not one you think of like a birthday or retirement, it's a you have survived a life of hell for 3 years. You have gone through 2 types of hardcore chemotherapy's , gone through all the nausea, you lost all your hair twice, you have had 5 MAJOR surgeries without knowing what the outcome would be. You have fought through all this and yet at the end of the day you are a SURVIVOR you are the one who has tolerated all of the above and them some not mentioned. I do celebrate in my own way that I have you hear with us after all this shit you have gone through , so yes you are a SURVIVOR and one of the strongest men I know. So I want to thank you for going today as a survivors who has stood up to cancer and fought with all you have to survive. I thank you for fighting Marco ....we love you very much!!!

Enough said....I will post picture if they send me one later....
