Talk the TalkSharing HopeAmerican Brain Tumor Association Dear Friends, Walk the Walk

I know first hand what a family must go through when a loved one is fighting a battle that he can’t possibly win. My dad, Walter Terlik, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor on February 9, 2003, which started our family’s battle that was all too short. Dad lost his battle on July 5, 2003, when he passed away surrounded by those he loved.

He was a man who was happy and lived life to the fullest. With his warm smile and big bear hugs, in his presence you couldn’t help but be happy. He didn’t often express his feelings with words but his actions spoke volumes. Whether it was a smile, a caress, a kiss, a hug or just a nod of his head, you knew exactly what he was thinking, “I am truly a happy and fortunate man.”

My dad was my hero and taught me so
much- how to change a tire or the oil in my first car, how to unclog a drain, or hammer a nail, but most importantly he taught me how to be happy and how to love. He was a man I was proud to call my dad and someone I will share with my daughter as she grows up.

Please join us on Saturday, June 26th for a
fundraising walk, Sharing Hope, at the UConn Alumni Association on the UConn Storrs campus that will help those affected today and those who will be affected tomorrow by brain tumors.
