Dear all,

I have a dear friend, Dr. Philip Kivitz who is a radiologist at Stanford and he introduced me to Monica about 4 years ago. She was battling cancer while running a wonderful non-profit she founded called Cancer 101.

http://cancer101.org/

She was a marvelous, marvelous woman/advocate and it was an honor to know her.

I received this lovely u-tube video this morning..


Hopefully you can open it...please advise if you can't.

Monica, I still carry you in my heart and I know your beautiful work will continue.

warmly,

Steve

Steve,

The youtube video was beautiful.  The song is one of my favorites and on my iPod.  Her smiling face and pictures of the people in her life and travels tell me Monica lived a life well lived and was loved by many.  Thank you for sharing with us.

Hugs,
Donna

What a wonderful u-tube memorial video!  Thanks for sharing with us Steve.  Monica had such a beautiful, warm smile.  At first I thought she had just passed away and  as I was reading about her, I  realized it has been two years.  Hard to believe that someone that full of life who was so giving is no longer here.   She is a person who obviously is very much alive in her friends' memories and hearts.

May peace be with all her family and friends.
