My incredible friend Brian passed away from a rare cancer on April 6th, 2015.
I was able to fly home to the West Coast for his "Celebration of Life", which he helped plan before he passed. He was a San Francisco Giants fanatic so it was held at AT&T Park. And as requested by Brian, no one wore black unless they were wearing Giants colors.
Brian was the national spokesman for the Cycle for Survival campaign; a wonderful organization that raises money for rare cancer research, through cycling events held across the country. 100% Of all donations go directly towards lifesaving research.
To quote Brian, "I fight not for fear of dying, but joy of living. Smile, the world is just awesome."
