It has been 5 years since my brother Brian has passed away from brain cancer. My family and I miss his infectious laugh and can do attitude every day. Since then I have lost more friends to this dreaded disease and had countless others diagnosed. We have come a long way in moving forward in the ultimate control and eradication of this horrible disease, but we are not there yet.
I have run for cancer, I have biked(with my brother) for cancer, i have now swum for cancer and now it is time to do it again.
I am going to swim 3 miles(gulp) in open water to raise money for Hopkins to further their progress in the fight against cancer.
Since last year cancer has again stricken people that i love and care about very much.
We lost another light this year, Todd Porter, who's positive energy touched everyone he met. I know cancer will not be eradicated this year but with the work that is being done, we come one step closer to living and not dying.
We all get bombarded with pleas to give, give, give, but if this year you haven't found the right cause, or you have a little more to give, I would be honored if you could help me reach my goal.
