Personal Mission - May 12th, 2008

This has nothing to do with PHP or Javascript or any other kind of web technology out there. The last three weeks my family has been waiting to see what the next day brings with much trepidation. My grandfather’s thyroid cancer has returned. He will be seeking radiation treatment and probably chemo soon, but the situation is uncertain. The cancer has spread quite a bit since the last surgery and things don’t look that great.

I am participating in the Relay for Life that helps fund Cancer research. It may not be able to help my grandfather, but it can help the grandfathers, grandmothers, fathers, mothers, and siblings of someone. To me, in a way, it also gives me some semblance of control of his illness. It makes me feel like I can do something in the face of tragedy.

If you would like to help me reach my goal, my fundraising page can be found here. All donations are accepted. It’s the love in which they were given that’s important. You can also join the team if you so desire.

  • I was all excited about a new post, but hey, I’m really sorry you have to go through this, too. My grandfather and mother are still fighting. I will keep your family in my thoughts as well, and it is really cool, what you are doing.
