Don't Quit
Shore Up
Fight to the Bell

It's not a phrase.
It's who we are.
It's what we believe.

Our Story...

Pain is a part of life.
It has a way of making us become something different.
And whether that something different is becoming bitter
or becoming better is up to us and the story we want to tell.
For better or for bitter, pain has a unique ability to transform a person.

It's not if, but when cancer will impact your life.
Sometimes the fight is years or months long
and ends with ringing the bell.
Sometimes you fight and fight and fight,
and you ring the bell only to have it comeback.
And other times the fight is using the last few days
to say what you need to say.

Like anyone who has lost a parent, spouse, sibling, child,
or loved one to cancer I was left with a void in my life,
while holding a giant why?
And one of the questions I had to wrestle with is,
what do I do with this pain?

And really what I found is it's okay to not be okay for awhile.
But it's not okay to stay there.
So, what do you do with the pain?
What do you do when the miracle doesn't occur?

You redeem it.
And you use what was meant for evil to bring good into the world.

We have been in the fight.
And we want to be with you as you fight.
We want to extend our heartbeat in support of families facing cancer.
We want to inspire people to fight one more day.
We feel we have a responsibility to stand in the gap
to engage and inspire the courage that is in you.
The courage to fight.

With everything we do at Shore Up we lead with the simple focus...
Don't Quit.
Shore Up.
Fight to the Bell.

What's in a Name?

On February 4th, 2021 my dad told me he had cancer.

It was something we had feared for a few weeks.

After he said the words he looked at me and said, But we are going to shore up and fight.

What dad meant was we needed to find our courage because we're all going to need each other to beat this. What he didn't realize is to shore up means to support something, or to keep it from falling. We were his something he needed to shore up.

Seven weeks later dad died.

But his resolve, his words, and his courage live on.

Don't quit.

Shore up.

Fight to the bell.
