December 8, 1963 – April 4, 2016
Laurie was the founder of Cancer Comfort Angels, which provides a simple act of kindness in the form of comfort kits. Each kit includes a handmade blanket, a cross, words of prayer to let the patient know he or she is not alone, and a small poem to provide inspiration and hope beyond the clinical prognosis.
Laurie, who was diagnosed with stage-four breast cancer in 2008, was the 2012 Bosom Buddies Ball Honoree. She was extremely active within the community. She was an active member of the Kent Island United Methodist Church. Laurie’s greatest love was her family & friends and watching her children play sports. She was an incredible woman, full of courage, love, strength, kindness and grace.
If you had the pleasure of knowing her you should consider yourself blessed. She was one in a million ~ may she rest in peace forever. Our forever Angel – You will live in our hearts eternally!
CANCER IS NOT RIGHT OR WRONG
by Laurie Rasinski
Cancer is not right or wrong
It doesn’t own you
What it does is make you look inside yourself
A place you may not want to go
But you need to
Find what’s important
Take hold and love it so
In that you will see
There is so much to be thankful for
I know this can be hard
But look inside to find your happiness
What are your dreams?
Live with purpose
And you will find
That cancer is just part of who you are
That you were there all the time
