I and my therapy dog, Fozzy, visit children at Family House who are going through cancer treatment at UCSF Hospital in San Francisco. Serendipitously I was in Trokay Cafe and one of the wait staff was wearing a beautiful bracelet. I asked her where she got it and she told me about I lost my best friend to cancer when she was 20. This is truly a bracelet for wearing and for sharing. Trokay has always been a magical place for me, and now even more so. Thank you to Mel and those she inspired to create this amazing memory and to Trokay for opening my eyes to Mel’s story. I will wear this bracelet in memory not only of my best friend, Leah, but of the children at Family House who are battling and winning and also for those who fought hard and lost. Raul, this one’s for you.
