Sam’s fight with colon cancer started 2 months before my fight with breast cancer began.  Sam and I are the same age, we grew up together one street apart and championed each other during our battles.  Sadly, Sam lost his fight with cancer yesterday…


Life is fragile and you never know when your time is up! Let go of your anger, let go of the grudges, forgive those who have wronged you and live from a place of happiness and love. Give freely from your heart, help those less fortunate and always, ALWAYS count your blessings.

Greet the world with a smile and kindness; you never know what burdens another human has and your simple gesture could have a huge impact on them.

Listen more, talk less. Love, don’t fight.

Live your lives fully, do not be idle. Fill it with family, friends and good deeds. Volunteer your time and teach your children to do the same. Work to live, not the other way around. Follow your dreams and never give up.

Be the example!
