Journal entry by Shelly Cichy

I thought this might be a good way to reach everyone with an update and most importantly to extend my most sincere thanks and immeasurable gratitude for the support, incredible generosity and just amazing help and love our family has received.  The cards, gifts, meals, help with the house, fundraisers, meal trains, calls, texts , red wine, along with one of my most favorites, pop rocks! 

A special shout out to Colby (aka Ricky) for organizing a fundraiser and shaving his beautiful hair in honor of Jason.  As of today he has raised over $3300 that will go to the Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network, they are doing research and provider education on this rare aggressive cancer that Jason had.

I won't lie most days I don't know what the hell I am doing, a world without Jason is one that is so foreign to me.  But I will say, I feel his strength and I see it in all of us in how we are carrying on & forging ahead.  Andrew has a great job he loves, he is back in classes studying Computer Science, he has that quiet strength and incredible intelligence that Jason had, he has been my rock.  Mitch is working hard in his senior year, joined the tennis team, applying to colleges and focusing on his health and fitness.  He makes me laugh every day.  These boys are turning into good men that their Dad would be so proud of.

I hope we never forget ELE out of respect for Jason's beautiful life.

Thanks so very much for everything, Love Shelly
