Love your life

I lost my brother to this horrible disease called lung cancer. He was 47 years old. He was diagnosed as stage 4 in July of 2015 and given a 9 month diagnosis with treatment. He made it 15 months. He didn't always feel good but his spirit was huge. He brought a smile and a thumbs up wherever he went. He tried everything he could. It wasn't always easy and my sister in law fought for him every step of the way. We formed a team and rallied around him. He is missed every day and will always be my hero!

He was the best. Definitely changed my outlook on life. Live, love and laugh. Don't put things off. Take life and enjoy it now. He loved sunrises and sunsets and im glad in his last days that he got to witness a beautiful one. I appreciate those moments more now than ever!
