Her Story,

I just want to share a story with everyone. I met the love of my life when I was attending college at UPG many years ago, and I knew she was the one from the moment I saw her in that Megadeth hoodie. Our love blossomed like a beautiful flower. We got each other through school and every hardship in our lives together. She wasn’t just my best friend but she became my entire world, the air I breathe, my sun, my moon, and on July 25th 2020 my wife. We would spend every moment we could together. Concerts, date nights, binge watching our favorite shows, Saturday morning Dunkin runs, Sunday brunch, cuddling every chance we got, and raising our beautiful corgi. On July 10th of this year she was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer. Our world stopped in an instant, but we fought the good fight. We agreed to keep this a secret because we didn’t want to worry our friends and loved ones. Over the course of 6 months she went through extensive treatment, and I was with her at every doctor’s appointment and hospital stay. Our hopes were high and we were on the final legs of treatment. On the last treatment date we discovered the cancer spread to her liver and became overly aggressive. Treatment became impossible in the weeks to come. Last night I lost my best friend, and my wife to this horrible fucking disease. I was holding her in the hospital bed as she was taking her final breathes. I didn’t want her to be alone, and I only hope she knew I was there telling her how much I loved her. All I could think was I wanted to leave this world with her, but she told me she wanted me to be happy. I don’t know how I can get through this life without her, but I’m going to try my best. She wanted to share her story with the world as a PSA. Cancer doesn’t know age, and can strike when you are at your happiest. Please take care of yourself and hold your loved ones a little tighter tonight.

My daughter in law Katie was an angel on earth... now she's one of God's angels. We are beyond heartbroken. I loved her like she was my own. She brought so much joy into our lives .. such a sweet, caring, and loving soul she was. She and Justin adored each other ... it was apparent. I am so proud of how he took care of her ... Now she will remain in our hearts forever until we meet again. 💔
