The Serianni Family invites you to join them
at Paws for the Cause.
My name is Heather Serianni and in 2009 my husband, Frank, was diagnosed with Lymphoma. We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy journey, but almost four years later, I can honestly say, it has impacted our lives in ways we never would have imagined. Frank has endured months of hospitalization, various chemotherapy treatments, radiation and two bone marrow transplants. He has had a multitude of complications as a result. As a family, we have had to adapt to living with cancer, leaning on one another for support. Even our dogs have had to pitch in. They have been such good sports, faithfully sitting by Frank’s side when he isn’t feeling well and snuggling up with our son, Butch, when we’ve had to spend long hours at the hospital. Cancer is certainly a family affair.
We feel very fortunate that Frank’s medical team is among the very best in the country. While it has been a rough road it’s a comfort to know they are on the front lines of the fight. Cancer can be a pretty cruel adversary, waging war on the body, mind and spirit. Sometimes, the greatest hope a patient has is the promise of a new drug or new treatment. For every patient, cancer research is a powerful weapon. Paws for the Cause is a great way to rally for cancer research, and show our love for those who are part of the fight. We hope you and your pets will join us!
