While still grieving the loss of his wife (my mother) of almost 50 years, my father was diagnosed with stage IV adenoma carcinoma of the lung in October 2018. This development has made me appreciate the importance of compassionate care during such challenging times.
With that in mind, my daughters, Emily (age 10) and Abby (age 8) have joined a number of strong, civic-minded individuals in our community to walk the runway on April 25th at the Ridgefield Playhouse for the Annual Fashion Show in support of Ann's Place. Ann’s Place is a rare and special gem in this world. It's a place that’s committed to offering a broad range of cancer support services to anyone (and their loved ones) that is diagnosed with cancer. The talented and caring team at Ann’s Place has been able to do this free of charge - thanks in large part to the gracious support of our community.
My daughters and I are walking to honor my father (their grandfather) Harry Wo:
At the “tender” age of 85, Harry has been fighting the battle of his life. He has done so with a humble smile and a grateful heart.
His strong spirit has always inspired me. These days his spirit reminds me that we are all fighting an individual battle. But we should be comforted in knowing that we are never alone in the battlefield. We are a collective force of strength and positive energies. We are very fortunate to live in a community that has always been supportive of all good things.
