Story

[p]My sister, Jennifer was diagnosed with bowel cancer that had spread to her liver. Her doctor had shown her how much significant progress she had made after three chemo treatments. We were all high-fiving. She said, "bro, I think I dodged a bullet." Sadly three and a half weeks later, on December 29th around midnight her time, she passed. A major infection had taken her life.[/p][p]I feel fortunate that Laura and I were able to visit her and her family in November, in her hometown of Ilfracombe, Devon England. She looked great and was super optimistic.[/p][p]At her house one night, she brought out a care package that [url=https://chemohero.com/]ChemoHero[/url] had given her when she received her chemo at the hospital. She pulled out the books, honey, skin products, scarf, and wristband that I now wear in her memory. She told us how much it meant to her and how kind everyone had been.[/p][p]I'm deeply saddened by the loss of my "Sostir," as I had nicknamed her. One of the memories that brings me comfort is the thought of how supportive ChemoHero has been to her. This is why her husband, Michael, son, Elliott, my significant other, Laura, my ex Myndi, my daughter, Sophia, and I want to do whatever we can to give back to those who gave to us.[/p][p]I ask that you join me in supporting the wonderful work being done by ChemoHero in their community in Devon by making a donation in Jennifer's (Sostir) memory.[/p]
