Kevin's mother passed away three years ago yesterday because of a still uncurable disease, Cystic Fibrosis. She lived an extraordinarily full life, having three healthy, rambunctious boys (those with CF are usually sterile) and living into her fifties, which is almost unheard of.
I never met her.
Take a moment to send some good vibes to the thousands of people currently battling CF. Or if you're feeling especially philanthropic, go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website and throw a few ducets towards the effort to find a cure.
