I am running in memory of my love, Mike, who we lost to Cholangiocarcinoma, a very rare cancer. To further research efforts surrounding this horrendous disease, I am asking for your support. Together, we can raise awareness and help others affected by this disease.
Mike, thank you for being the best person to ever come into my life. You brought out a level of happiness in me I didn’t even know existed. Thank you for being the most incredible person and boyfriend ever and thank you for all of our memories and adventures. I love and miss you every day.
Below is a poem I wrote in the days after his death.
Another day has arrived
without you by my side
I keep on waiting for this nightmare to end
And for you to come home again
This home is not the same anymore
A big piece is missing and for that there's no cure
You have my heart and I have yours too
Always loving and missing you
The times we've shared were incredulous
You are the world to me and my one fulfilled wish
Thank you for teaching me so many things
Oh the tumultuous joy it brings
Waking up with you each day
holding you so close in every way
I love you baby oh so much
words can't describe how I miss your touch
I know that you are here with me
and for that I will always try to be
More like you in every way
more like you every day
Loving life one step at a time
being so positive, happy, and kind
Living life to the fullest with laughter and cheer
with positive vibrations and living without fear
I wish I could have more time with you
And to say more “I love you too”.
