The date, I received my diagnosis of stage 4 gliolblastoma was , December 7, 2010, and the irony was not lost on me, as it became our personal Pearl Harbor day sneak attack that we never could have imagined.

A couple days after returning home from the hospital we heard the song “The best Part of the Day” recently released by Elton John and Leon Russell for the first time. Music has always been a mainstay in our lives that has helped us through tough times, and to celebrate good times. Through these past weeks and months we’ve done our best to seek the best part of each day as tough as that has been at times. The on-going blessings, and support we receive during this time continue to humble me deeply.

This journey we find ourselves on continues to present many challenges on multiple fronts, but also many opportunities. We look forward to joining the efforts occurring locally, and nationally to raise awareness, and funds to support research through the ABTA, and to provide help wherever needed.
