A Windy City Love Story


Angela and Brad first met as little kids growing up in the same neighborhood. Their mothers were friends and they spent their childhood playing together and becoming good friends. Following high school, they went their separate ways. It wasn’t until years later, when they had both gone through divorces, that they reconnected and saw each other in a new light. Before long and to the surprise of no one, they fell in love and began planning a life together.


Unfortunately, cancer had other plans for Angela and Brad’s relationship. After previously battling cancer twice in the past, Angela was naturally very vigilant about her health. Just six months into her relationship, she began to suspect that something was not right and demanded that her doctors investigate. She was shockingly diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer that had metastasized to her spleen.


Despite the incredibly challenging nature of her diagnosis, Angela is trying her best to remain positive and upbeat. She is bravely undergoing intense chemotherapy treatments every two weeks and is fighting for her life with Brad by her side.
