On the lighter side of things…A New York kind of story

I haven’t blogged in a while, but this seemed like a story worth writing about…there are just those moments that you feel should be committed to paper…or whatever it’s called that we’re writing on these days that seems paper-like.

I was meeting my friend Lisa for lunch a couple of days ago, she and I have known each other for close to twenty-five years.  She and I knew each other before I had my first daughter, before I was diagnosed with ...

Some things can’t be expressed on film or video blog. Some things you have to write down.

When I was speaking at Fairfield Ludlowe High School yesterday one of the students asked me how I thought what I’ve been through had changed me?  This of course is a huge question.  It would take almost an entire class to answer just this question.  But I think if I had had the time to think about it beforehand, the way I’ve had since he asked, I would say that it has given me the understanding of the power of ...

An Amazing Indiegogo Thank-You

As of today I have walked three days and covered approximately 30 miles. I’m not actually walking today, this is what I call a “DOWN DAY”, a day I don’t walk.  It will be a day I do other things and I may walk some on these days, but I won’t walk multiple miles. This is the first day in a while I’ve had the time to extend the Thank-Yous to those that donated on the Indiegogo fundraising site that ...

Many Thank Yous’ to Come

Hi Everyone, I’ve just completed my first day of walking, I’m a bit tired, but feel better than I was expecting to feel.  I’ll be vlogging later under the FILM section of the website, please check that out-I’ll be trying to do that every day, or as often as my energy or internet service along the route will allow.  I intend to blog again shortly to thank everyone who donated through the indiegogo fundraising website who helped Brain Matters not ...

You Must Row With The Oars You Have

This walk is about so many things for me…

It is about what I’ll be able to give to others…and to a cause that I know needs more funding…and that not many other people either know about unless they themselves or someone in their family has been affected by a brain tumor.  In fact, even if they do know about brain tumors, they may not know that there’s such a need for more funding or research. This walk is also about ...

As If Walking Wasn’t Enough

In a few days it will be 90 days from the day I start walking from my house to Mass General Hospital.  This walk has metamorphosed.

When I first thought about how I could talk to people about brain tumors and the need for more funding and research, I had also just started to have strange seizure like events-I was advised by my doctors not to drive until they figured out what was going on with me.  I had to walk ...

Friend of a Friend

A couple of weeks ago I was sick with the flu, I should have gotten the vaccine, but in the past I’ve gotten the vaccine and actually ended up getting the flu anyway. I made an Executive Decision and decided not to have the vaccine this year…wrong decision. Next year I will get the vaccine…next year I’ll be one of the first people to get it. This flu took me down to the mat. First, Rachel got it-this is almost ...

On A Mission

A Mission is a responsibility, a duty, a commitment, a life’s work, an undertaking, a journey, an intention, a venture, a purpose, a calling, a pledge

A Mission Statement is supposed to be an official statement of the aims and objectives of a business, but it’s so much more.

I’ve written several mission statements for companies I’ve started, companies I’ve thought of starting, projects I’ve started, or thought of starting-it’s what I’ve had to do, it was ...

Don’t Put Off To Tomorrow, What You Can Do Today!

I almost can’t help myself, I’ve been living this way for so long; funny thing is that until only recently I thought everyone lived this way. I was talking to a friend of mine about all the things I’ve been doing…this is a long list of things, partially because of habit (I’ve always been a person who feels best when I’m doing a lot of things), and partially because I’m a person who has ...

I’m Walking, Yes Indeed I’m Walking

So next October 1st, it’s my hope should all things go right (this is no small task), that it’ll be the first day I will be on the road to Boston. My plan is to walk 10 miles a day, the trip is about 300 miles long…it’s shorter if I’m driving, the trip is longer because I’ll be going through individual neighborhoods. When I drove the trip every week in 2008 for radiation ...
