A Note from Jody
This photo of my daughter Ryan and her boyfriend was taken at the hospital during her treatment for cancer. For someone like me, who takes thousands of photos every year, I have exactly 4 photos from her stays in the hospital for her chemo treatments which together totaled almost 2 years in its entirety. While it is not something I want to remember, this particular moment sums up his love for her, as does the song lyric, by one of my favorite songs by the band, Coldplay.

You and Bobby have been together for 4 years, but for the better part of 2 of those years, you have been battling cancer. Throughout it all, he has been there to wipe your tears, he has cheered you up and he has been your rock. I know he feels exactly like we do, if he could fix you he would. If only it were that easy.

March Fun Fact
During treatment, Ryan’s surgeon was asked to give a name of a patient whose story would make a good advertisement for their hospital, Mount Sinai. He chose Ryan and her full page ad ran in the Sunday New York Times magazine section. They got such a positive response from it, they ran it 8 different times!
