October 11, 2018 We joined the fight no family wants to go through. As I walked out of the Taussig Cancer Center with the love of my life, I closed my eyes, struggled to catch my breath and TIME STOOD STILL. I grabbed John's hand and a wave of emotion nearly brought me to my knees. I couldn't imagine life without him, our children without their Dad and precious time together as a family. Doctors think John has had it for a long time. It was raging behind his rigorous life style. Ju jitsu, grappling, sport performance. John was having back issues from time to time. Eventually, it reared its ugly head. No more quick recoveries. It was one punch in the gut after another as we went through all the scopes, scans and labs. I thought to myself, " It can't be! He is still in his 40's, fit and in the prime of his life. Stage 4 colon cancer. It's an aggressive form that has spread throughout his body. Telling the most precious people in our world was gut wrenching. Cassidy and Carter's sweet faces will forever be seared in my mind. John is their hero! He is this big indestructible teddy bear. The questions to follow will weigh on my heart for a long, long time. Carter, " Will Dad lose his big, beautiful hair? Will he still be loud and funny?? Cassidy, who is 12 going on 18 doesn't mince words. She wants to know what stage?? We hid nothing from them, answered their questions honestly. We are in this together as a family! We know we are NOT in this alone. Many of you reading this right now have been touched by cancer and perhaps have run into us at the Cleveland Clinic. Every morning I open my eyes and look over at John hoping this is all just a bad dream, but it's not. It's reality. So, we fight like everyone else. I told John, "God didn't give you cancer because he wants you to die. He gave you cancer because he wants you to live like you've never lived before. You’ve got to find your fight! Go and Be the HERO of your story!! We are all waiting on the edge of our seats. We have loved each other since we were teens at Copley High School. I remember the day we said our wedding vows in 2002. In sickness and in health… until death do us part. J
