we understand the pain

Both Dr. C and Trish know the heartbreaking pain of losing a loved one to cancer. In October of 2009, Trish lost her mom, Sharon, to Ovarian cancer after a courageous battle lasting five and a half years. Shortly after, Dr. C lost his dad, Rich Sr., to a rare form of Burkitt’s Lymphoma one year after being diagnosed.

we believe in the power of positivity

During their parents’ journeys, they saw first-hand the power of positivity and hope. Their parents never lost hope and never stopped giving back to their communities. Trish’s mom lived every day to the fullest and found laughter to be the best medicine of all. Dr. C’s dad believed strong faith and love for one’s family and friends were more powerful than anything. He understood that while some things in life are out of our control, a positive attitude and faith the size of a mustard seed has the power to move mountains.
