Life is always hectic... but when you're in your 30's, raising three children and starting a new business there never seems to be enough time for anything especially for yourself. Taking the kids to school in the morning, taking care of a 1 year old during the day, basketball and swimming practice after. She is a Super Woman I tell you.
But after a while my girlfriend Nancy started to have a pain in her stomach and it just got worse and worse. Finally, she took time for herself and went to the doctor. Stage four stomach cancer. Its the diagnosis that makes your hectic life come to a halt and time stop.
Even though the sickness quickly spread, Nancy never gave up the fight... for her siblings, Mother and Father, for me, her son Joshua, our one year old Rebecca, and her step-daughter Marisae. My everything, my beauty was so strong the whole time.
When the diagnosis came we were concerned but not scared. These past few years we've faced everything together, we've grown stronger together; so prepared for the worse we took on this sickness, together. Nancy was and is the strongest woman I've ever known, I had seen her overcome the odds before. Years ago a devastating car crash left her badly injured and in a wheelchair, but she fought back and willed her way to a full recovery. This was not her first rodeo.
Even when I proposed next to her hospital bed ( she couldn't be more than 100lbs) she lit up the room and said yes with all of our children and family by our side.
We married... and the next day my wife became my Angel.
We started the year (like any parents) worried about finances for our kids... and I can say now as a single Dad this is something I could never have imagined.
If you decide to make a contribution, Thank you!
But more importantly, Thank you for taking the time to read about my Beautiful Nancy.
Even though she is no longer with us, I know her stronger than life will, her generous soul, her beautiful smile, and all the lives she has touched ... She will Live on forever. Just taking the time to read about her means so much to me and my family.
Nancy, I Love You. Your have my heart and I miss you so much. I will make you proud, raise our children to be the best they can be and never let them forget Mommy's watching over them in Heaven.
