In November of 2015 we lost our Brother, Firefighter Gil Smith to pancreatic cancer. Gil had an amazing appreciation for life and positive outlook for beating his cancer. He is missed everyday in our lives. Now, this terrible cancer is once again coming into our firefighting community with the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in Brother Alvin Vaughn. We feel so helpless in this fight so we are "Waging Hope Our Way". Merrick and I are riding across the country from Boston to Seattle, starting September 1st. We are raising awareness for cancers and debilitating diseases that are affecting people in our lives. You can follow our journey @becausesomecant.com and on facebook @because some can't.
By making a donation to us you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
