Posted on April 22, 2013Dear Friends and Family,
My dad, Jim, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 20th at 9:45am. He was in no pain, and was surrounded by his family. His funeral will be this Wednesday, at 11:00am. at Temple Beth Emeth in Ann Arbor, followed by the burial and a luncheon.
I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your incredible support and generosity in supporting my dad and donating to my fundraiser. I will still be running the marathon this Saturday in dad's honor and memory, and I am so greatful for all of your support and encouragement in this endeavor. It is absolutely incredible that we were not only able to reach our fundraising goal, but surpass it. My dad was, and would be, so proud of such outpourings of generosity in his honor. My mother, brother, and I are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Again, thank you so much for your generous donations. Together, we can stop this horrible disease from taking any more precious lives. Rest in peace, dad. You will forever be in our hearts, our minds, and our lives.

Posted on March 12, 2013Hello!
Dad just finished his first round of treatment! He's been reporting minimal side effects, and was feeling well enough to travel to Michigan for a little Hansell family reunion this weekend. Adam is already in Ann Arbor, and I will be meeting them on Thursday. My parents will move into their Boston apartment next week, and dad will begin his second, more aggressive, round of treatment.
Thank you for your continued love and support! We will continue to keep you all updated as dad's treatment plan continues to move forward!

Posted on February 28, 2013Hi everyone!
Mom and dad just returned from another successful round of Chemotherapy in Boston (round 6). Aside from a little fatigue, dad says that he is feeling well! Donations are still coming in, which is incredible! I will be leaving on Saturday to lead a college Spring Break trip to Cumberland Island, GA, for a week, so I will not have internet and likely no phone service as well. So, if you get in touch with me and don't get a response, that's why! And, of course, thank you all so much for everything that you are doing for my family! Sending love your way!
