MICHAEL PALAY:14 DAYS TO GO!

By Michael Palay, May 26, 2011

Ours is a story that happens to other families not to us. Someone complains of breathing problems, they think it's asthma, then pneumonia, but its cancer and by then it's too late. My wife Elana was 40 years old and didn't have a chance to fight. She passed away 2 weeks after finally being diagnosed and they were still unable to identify the root but it spread to her lungs and liver. Her lungs and heart were filling with liquid at a rapid pace...too quick for her body to handle, and on April 26, 2010 we lost her.I lost my best friend, and the world lost a great spirit. Elana did so much for the Winnipeg Community which was evident by 900+ people that attended her funeral.Then a mere 7 months later my Dad at the age of 90 years old succumbed to 3 forms of Cancer!My family and I are still trying to absorb the lessons from this. I know that when I get caught up in life’s frivolous tribulations I think of my wife, my Dad and I take a step back.Can we beat Cancer?..Let's keep trying..Let's WALK the TALK!
 
PLEASE DONATE WHAT U CAN. IF U HAVE ALREADY PLEASE PASS MY BLOG ON TO FRIENDS, FAMILY, ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
