Sam Westmoreland

Unknown to September 24, 2001

This is my dad, Sam Westmoreland, who was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma in January 2001. They found 7 brain tumors and 1 lung tumor. This is the result of melanoma on his face about 4 years ago. He was told there is no cure and that it was only a matter of time before he dies. Shortly after he was diagnosed he decided to try and fight this terrible disease. He went through a lot of chemo and radiation. After none of this worked, he was told at the end of August or beginning of September that it could be a few weeks or a few months. He was very courageous throughout his battle with cancer. He passed away on September 24, 2001. Even though we all miss him, I know he is in a better place where he will suffer no more. I pray a cure will be found soon.
