Brian Hogan was diagnosed with Stage O melanoma when he was 27. In May of 2008, at the young age of 38, after complaining of a sore neck, he got a MRI and found a tumor on his spine. After further tests and scans, the melanoma was everywhere – Lungs, Liver, Spine and Brain. After a short, but hard-fought 61 day battle, he passed away at his home in July 2008 surrounded by his loving wife and family. Brian was taken from us in such a senseless and tragic way. But those two months we knew he had cancer didn’t define him. Brian was the best husband, friend, son and brother God would have ever given to us. We miss him every second of every day.
