Profile Information

Please list your CarePage/Caring Bridge/blog site, your organization, or your reason for being here?
Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
I am married to Patrick and my children are Michelle (13), Nina (angel at age 8) and Simon (8). I am a free-lance translator for German documents.
Nina was diagnosed with stage IV rhabdomyosarcoma in Oct. 2005. She successfully completed chemotherapy and radiation treatments and was in remission. In Jan. 2007 she relapsed and underwent palliative treatment. She died at home, surrounded by her loving family on Nov. 15, 2007, at the age of 8.
Nina loved the color red. She was a Girl Scout, a dancer and liked arts and crafts and swimming. She had a dry sense of humor and cared very much about people. We will miss her forever.

St. Baldrick's - Norfolk, Virginia

Posted on March 18, 2009 at 11:48am 0 Comments

I just wanted to report on a very successful St. Baldrick's event at Waterside Marketplace in Norfolk, VA. Our team, the RED Iron Octopus Crusaders had 35 members and raised over $34,000 not counting money turned in on the event day. Our team honored Ian, a 6-year old survivor and also shaved in memory of Krissy, Tommy and my own daughter Nina, all of whom have been stolen from us by cancer. Here are our team's before and after pictures:…

Our family attended the Candlelighters Tree Lighting Event at the Old Post Office Pavilion in Washington, DC on December 6. (see for information about Candlelighters). Each year, a 23-foot tree covered with thousands of gold ribbons is displayed to raise awareness about childhood cancer. The sight is both beautiful and horrific.

The ribbons are in honor or memory of a child who has or had cancer.…


A phone call from Nina's doctor

Posted on November 17, 2008 at 3:12pm 3 Comments

I wanted to share that I just got a phone call from Nina's oncologist saying that he could not believe it's been a year since she died. He actually remembered! Once when Nina was mad about having to take Decadron she wrote a list of the top ten reasons why she hated it and gave it to her doctor. He thought it was awesome and he told me today he still has it hanging beside the work station in the clinic and thinks of Nina whenever he sees it.

This brought tears to my eyes but also joy to my… Continue

Hi Stephanie,
Would you like the petition signatures for your state to take with you to DC, maybe part of your leave behind packets as there are many stories there? If so email AJ's Dad. See you soon!

I just wanted to let you know that I am taking your advice.
This September there is a century ride in Surry County. I am going to set up a CureSearch account and raise money.
Then next year I will do one as well.

Hi Stephanie
Thank you so much for the comment on my page. Yesterday just plain sucked, but as I said, it wasn't any worse than the past 364 days. We move on because we have to. I hope you and your family are doing as well as possible. I say a prayer of support for you on a daily basis.

and what I should have said first is that I am so sorry for the terrible heartbreak of a mother and father and grandparents and kids and family and friends and for a life that mattered being lost. Maybe I couldn't go there first b/c I can't go there with Heliaz. Sorry.

I am 9 days into this. If you want to know the history of the young man that we are standing by, go to I would love to know everything you know about Rhabdo. Thanks, Marci
