I know today is meant for remembering those who's lives were lost while fighting for our country so please excuse the "stretch" but my dad was a different kind of fighter; one definitely worth honoring. The last few weeks have felt pretty numb for me. The roller coaster we call grieving has been humbling. I would do just about anything to be back on the bone marrow transplant roller coaster. As the days keep passing, I find myself grabbing onto whatever I can. If anyone still reads this and has a story or experience they'd like to share, I'd love to hear them.
I recently had the opportunity to visit with a bunch of my dad's referee friends and I really enjoyed it. Darlene Patterson, the wife of Paul Patterson is a member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma's Team In Training. She is "racing for a cure" in a 100 mile bike ride at Lake Tahoe. She is riding this race in memory of her father, Jack Davis, who died of cancer and also my father.
Please check out her website here and donate to this great cause.
I've attached a few photos from the field dedication as well as the new logo for my dad's basketball camp.
