In loving memory of Lori Buckfire

Dear Lori,

You came into my life two short years ago and you touched me in a way so few people have.  We were instantly connected by our genetic mutation and our unending desire to see a world without cancer. 

With Lori at Relay for Life in 2008.

You introduced me at Relay for Life as a cancer warrior but you were the cancer warrior.  You fought Ovarian Cancer like a champion for so many years.  I admired your strength and your ability to find the humor in nearly every situation.  I looked forward to reading your blog posts and laughed out loud at your frank and hilarious stories.  Tomorrow will be a sad day for the thousands of people who were lucky to know you.  You were loved and admired by so many.   And we will all continue to fight this dreaded disease in your memory and in your honor.  

With love always and forever,

Ellyn
