My husband, Bob, was employed by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Labor and Industry for 35 years.  He was passionate about serving our community as a Borough Councilman and did so throughout his illness. He also kept very active golfing and playing softball for many years.  The day that Bob was diagnosed with Stage IV Stomach Cancer (adenocarcinoma), "our world exploded" and our lives were changed forever!  That was in September, 2009.  He then began aggressive chemotherapy treatments.  He responded well and a total gastrectomy was performed in May 2010.  Bob never gave up hope and lived each day to its fullest.  He was a true inspiration to our family, friends and the entire community!  Bob lost the biggest fight of his life to stomach cancer on February 26, 2012 but his legacy will live on forever.  Our three children and six grandchildren will hold his memory dear in their hearts.  My family and I formed a committee to sponsor an annual softball tournament and fundraiser to benefit Debbie's Dream Foundation.  It is held at the Robert V. Semenza Softball Field, which was named in Bob's honor the month before he passed away.  The amazing response and success we have had is a true testament to a life well lived!  My husband's passion to help others has become my passion to join with Debbie's Dream Foundation in making the cure for stomach cancer a reality!
