Today this guy would have turned 43! It would have also been the three-year anniversary of his cancer diagnosis. This year, as the date approached, I simply viewed it as Ramón's birthday. In fact, I only remembered two days ago about the coinciding cancer-versary. That's major progress in my healing journey!
Here are some ways to help celebrate Ramón today:
Do something kind for another person
Toast to his remarkable life
Treat yourself to something he loved, like Indian food or donuts or both
Schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets
Donate to a cause that promotes social justice, helps animals, or, of course, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - fightcf.cff.org/goto/drew
Happy birthday, Your Honor!
