Last week we lost a beloved member of the Certis Oncology family. As she participated in our research,Rachel became our close friend. She inspired us with her uncommon bravery, her ironic sense of humor, her vitality and her brilliant life energy. She leaves behind her husband Forrest, two beautiful children, a large extended family and a loving community.
When we remember Rachel, we’ll remember that she wanted people to act “normal” around her. But what we’ll remember most is that she wanted to be able to look her children in the eye and tell them she had done everything she could to stay with them as long as possible.
