I am privileged to be the father of three amazing kids, Taylor (19), Kyla (almost 17), and Katelyn (14). These three kiddos are the products of the love Maureen and I shared over almost 25 years of marriage, prior to her passing after an on-and-off 11 year battle with breast cancer on the morning of October 21, 2014.

In addition to the opportunity I had to present at Susan G. Komen’s 2017 Big Data 4 Breast Cancer event in Menlo Park, Kyla has chosen to step up to the fight with breast cancer with Susan G. Komen as well. Her big brother’s #onething has been his passion for Habitat for Humanity, Kyla has chosen Komen and the #boldgoal as her #onething to honor her mom. She tells her story, her mom’s story, and the story of #pinkkids, which she is launching soon, in the More Than Pink podcast with Suzanne Stone of Komen Austin.

Kyla has also created a team for Race for the Cure on September 30. You can donate and support her here at Team #PinkKids.
