Remembering my Dad on the two year anniversary of his passing, as we remember all those we've lost and those we continue to care for during MSA  See more

THE STORY:

James F. Phillips passed away on March 17, 2017 - within 6 months of his MSA diagnosis.   He was 77.   My father accepted his illness with dignity;  he hid his  pain and fear.   He never stopped laughing, never stopped caring about the people around him, never stopped wanting the best for others.   

Jim was a retired high school math teacher.  He was signed by the Dodgers after his freshman year in college but chose to complete his education first.   An injury prevented him from returning to professional sports, and he went on to get his Masters in Math Education.  He was also a pioneer in computer education at Walt Whitman High School.  In his 35 years of service with South Huntington, NY school district, he touched the lives and enriched the minds of countless students, many of whom remained in his life years after they graduated.   He became a real estate broker in his retirement years, and felt great joy and pride in helping families settle into their new homes on Long Island. 

My Dad loved people - if he met you, he was your friend.  He was a loving father, husband, brother, uncle.   As his only child, it is hard to imagine this world without him.  

I want to raise awareness of this disease, support caregivers, educate medical providers about the needs of families, and contribute to medical research.
