Seven years ago, we lost my sister-in-law to cancer. Five years ago, we found out that my sister had breast cancer. Luckily my sister, Alecia, won that battle; she is a survivor!!!! Since that time, I lost three fraternity brothers, Rob Lamolinara, Jamie Gilder, and Jon Di Virgilio, and now another fraternity brother, Ian Hiltner, is fighting his battle. Other friends of mine, including Rowena Kam-Bergman and my high school classmates, Lee Martin and Frank Manning, have had their battles and are survivors. Cancer has affected too many of my famiy and friends. I want to help stop that. I want to help those affected by families and raise money to find new treatments and, hopefully, a cure.
