Cousin Paul

My Cousin Paul was diagnosed with Leukemia shortly before his wedding in 1998 at the age of 27.  He endured a plethora (one of his favorite words) of medical appointments, tests, procedures, medications, and therapies in hopes of keeping the cancer at bay. Paul, very truly, lived life to the fullest.  After this diagnosis, he married his true love, prospered in his career, and most importantly, became the proud and devoted father of two adorable boys!  Despite his TREMENDOUS courage, strength, and strong will, he passed away at the age of 33.

In two weeks, his wife and children will participate in The Light the Night Walk sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Wisconsin.  I have attached the link to this very worthwhile organization in hopes that increased funding will allow the necessary research to continue.

(Paul, you are loved and missed).
