      Many of us on the board got to meet Kevin in Chapel Hill.  Although the disease already had a grip on him he was able to get us all laughing and to give us hope.  He fought so hard, trying all kinds of drugs and combinations to win his battle.  His biggest concern was his son.  My heart goes out to this family.

      Kevin helped many on this board. A true warrier.  A toast to you my friend.

                          I'm saddened to hear of another loss to this horrid disease. My thoughts go to his family.

                          I'm just so damn sick of it. People should not be dying of cancer in 2010! We need more treatments that help more people.

                          I'm sorry for the vent. I'm just so sad and pissed to keep hearing of these wonderful people being taken so prematurely due to this horrible beast.

                                                              My world is a much sadder and emptier place today.  But I am glad Kevin is at peace and pain free, finally free of the Beast that took him.  Rest in peace Kevin.

                                                                I am absolutely heartsick.  I had such a nice time meeting Kevin in Chapel Hill.  He was one of my only mel. buddies with leptomeningial mets, like me.  I had an email from him not too long ago & he seemed to be kind of treading water.  I hate that he suddenly took a turn for the worst.   My heart goes out to his wife and son.  He loved them so much, and fought so hard to stay with them

                                                                My world is a much sadder and emptier place today.  But I am glad Kevin is at peace and pain free, finally free of the Beast that took him.  Rest in peace Kevin.
