It Is What It Is
Ken Bieschke was a loving father, husband, brother, and friend to so many people throughout his life. In August of 2008, at the age of 46, he passed away due to glioblastoma brain cancer after an 18 month battle. Those who knew him, knew him as loving, funny, a wonderful storyteller, and of course, as Uncle Stumpy. His favorite phrase throughout his entire illness was "It Is What It Is." You can't change what is already set in stone so you might as well deal with it as best you can! He was such an inspiration for everyone around him, even while he was sick and he deserved a longer life, as do the countless other people affected by this illness. So let's do something about it!
Brain cancer is an ugly cancer, and the Race For Hope is doing something to fight back.
