7th Annual Softball Tournament

2009 Tournament Champions, Team Berlin Police & Fire

On Sunday, August 23, 2009, we held our 7th Annual softball tournament benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in memory of my mother, Theresa Gigliotti. My mom was the most giving and loving person I have ever known. She would take people in or give the shirt off her back to someone in need. She always put others before herself. On March 2, 2003 the world I knew was taken from… Continue

As I’m sure many of you know, it is impossible to put into words the sense of despair you feel when you hear the words “your child has cancer.” It was no different for us when we found out that the “bump” on her face was ultimately cancer; and not just any cancer, but a type of cancer that her doctors had never seen before. If that weren’t enough, we found this out after the tumor had been growing for 9 months and had been misdiagnosed 3 times.

So here we are, two+ years of chemo… Continue

It just hit a 2x4...

Kyra has been battling this disease for 6.5 years. Hard to believe - she's only 8. Like all of us for whom this tragic horrible disease has touched, our child and our families, it takes enormous energy to just get from one day to the next. I have been so centrally focused on daily survival over the years - emotional, physical and financial that looking outside of that bubble was more than I could bare. If I was struggling that hard inside the bubble - the outside would be a hell of a lot worse… Continue

National Childhood Cancer Awareness Proclamation-Georgetown, Texas

This evening the mayor of Georgetown gave us the proclamation at the city council meeting. We had many of our friends attend. Many of Ishani's class mates were there too. It was very emotional. I gave a 2 min talk before the mayor read the proclamation - first time I am speaking in public about cancer. My voice did quiver a few times, but I got through it. Kept telling myself that if our kids are so strong I should atleast be able to do this! We… Continue

Green world, love the chloroform

Front porch in the thunderstorm

Controlled chaos, confused energy

Stop reading the weather charts

Stop counting the playing cards

There's no system, there's no guarantees

That the love you feel and carry inside

Can be passed

But you try, I know you do, you still…

Our Bad News...

On August 5th, 2009, we demanded scans of Mattie since he was having increased pain, and we discovered that his cancer had spread to many places in his body. We have lost the battle against the cancer and are now no longer treating his disease, but rather focusing on making Mattie's remaining days with us as enjoyable as they can. This has come as a terrific shock, that has only been compounded by a year filled with depression, sorrow, pain, anguish, and fatigue.

We cannot say thank… Continue

An Intern's Experience...

When I encounter people as wonderful as Liz and Jay Scott, as well as the rest of the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation crew, I sometimes wonder if people are really as good as they seem. Can they really be so giving by donating so much of their time to helping other people? Yet as I have spent time at the foundation over the past three weeks as part of the Julien Krinsky Career Builders summer program, I have found that everyone is just as great, in… Continue
