Normally, I hate reading posts like this, but unfortunately, I am in a position to start the ball rolling.
There is a man in Miami who I respect greatly. A ten year US Navy Veteran, a security contractor who served in Iraq. A father of two, and a loving husband.
Recently he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. He obviously has a terminal diagnosis. A good friend of mine, and former coworker of his, has set up a page to accept donations to help with his Medical Expenses, and sadly his future funeral expenses.
All I ask if for you guys to PLEASE check out the website, read a bit about Alex, and if you find it in your heart, make a donation. No matter how small, it will be greatly appreciated. And, if the move strikes you, please share this with anybody who you feel may also be able to help out.
On Sunday, my friend and I were channel surfing and we stumbled across the Laureus Sports Awards (I think) on NBC. When we tuned in, there were a bunch of people biking/skating/blading in a half-pipe set up on stage.
