As many of you are aware, we lost one of our best friends over the weekend. Pat P was diagnosed with an aggressive form of mouth/throat cancer in June 2014, just a few weeks after he competed on the CFS Team at Regionals. From that point forward he fought through several invasive surgeries, chemo, and radiation. Just when we thought he was in the clear and heading towards remission his mouth pain resurfaced and the doctors gave us the unbearable news…the end was only a matter of time.
Despite everything, Pat fought through his pain and lived the last year of his life on his terms. He traveled, spent time with family and close friends, and even came and worked out at the box quite a bit. Pat never felt sorry for himself, he remained positive in a time of hopelessness. His spirit was, and forever will be, unbreakable. Pat will live on always, in our hearts.
Pat’s family has asked us to host his memorial. We could not be more honored to hold a celebration to remember our dear friend. The memorial will be held this Sunday, November 22nd from 12-4. We will be posting more details about the celebration for Pat later this week. If you would like to help out please email [email protected].
