April 12 marked 4 years since my husband, Steven, was taken from us far too soon. Swede was a father, a grandfather, a son, a brother, a cousin, an uncle and a dear friend; but as we all know cancer doesn’t give AF. It doesn't spare "the good ones." It doesn’t care about the ones who love life, who love their families. It doesn’t care about the ones who laugh everyday or bring joy to others. It doesn't care about family or friends. It doesn’t care about what it takes from us — or who it leaves behind. I will not pretend that after 4 years, life without Steven has become any easier, or that I miss him any less. Every single day without him is a struggle, but if there is anything I can do to prevent others from feeling the pain that I feel today, I have to do it, which is why I am participating in the 2023 Ride for Roswell with my daughter, Lindy.
Since Steven left us 4 years ago, I am encouraged by the medical advancements being made in the war against cancer. I am hopeful that through events like this, we can continue to save more lives.
Please help me raise critically needed funds to support the thousands of patients who turn to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for hope each year. Your donation provides funding researchers need right now to investigate new treatment options that could save lives. For every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
Please consider donating today. FUCK CANCER!
