Mom took care of everyone for as long as I was blessed to know her. She is sorely missed, though we are still blessed to have her watching over us from heaven.

Mom had a lesion on her back removed that was diagnosed as melanoma. Five years later, she started getting blurred vision on Easter Sunday. There was a tumor in her head putting pressure that crossed one of her eyes. Shortly after that was removed, it was discovered that her bones were full of tumors. She passed away on June 14 that same year.

We lost her way too soon and miss her presence in our lives terribly. We honor her by helping others to find a cure for this awful disease.
