The Family

Cancer affects all of us.

I lost my wife, June, to lung cancer 14 years ago, and her sister, Roni, lost her ten-year battle with cancer a year later. I also lost my parents too early in life - my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40, which metastasized in her bone marrow eight years later, and she passed at 48. My dad had lymphoma and passed at 56. 

Above are a few photos of June, Diane, and Ray.


Together with Chef Ramon, June, who is Roni's cousin and an accomplished sushi chef, we created Sushi for a Cure to celebrate life with great food and honor everyone in our lives who is touched by cancer.

With the help of my daughter, Sophia, and son, Jared, we strive to continue the rich tradition of creating an extraordinary event supporting a significant cause.
