1 year ago, my husband Ian was diagnosed with "terminal cancer". He didn't like that term "terminal" so we didn't use it. He fought like a champ. Although he has been gone for 6 months, he is still with us. To show cancer that it did NOT win, Trevor and I went skydiving one year to the day of his diagnosis and gave cancer a BIG F-U!

I photo bombed some of Trevor's pics. I went skydiving a few years back, and jumped with a photographer. This was Trevor's first time, so I got a photographer to jump with him, pics & video. Awesome time!! That's the biggest smile I have seen from Trevor in a long time. Good reason to be happy.

Yeah F-it! Too damn much of it; my dad and gramma RIP, my mom clean for 14 yrs
Now, Blitzo, Susan, Donini and his radioactive balls, Tacoans we've lost, tacos that have/had it and are just not comfortable for one reason or another talking about it with the world- and there's more of those than any of us probably realize!

f*#k that Ca! Get out there, live and celebrate!

My partner and I are taking one of his lost arrows up the captain in a week or so. Thanks for letting so many of us share Ian's dream!
