A LOT Can Happen In 16 Years!

A LOT Can Happen In 16 Years!

I have a unique fascination with dates…I think it all started because the day I was born, October 6th, 1981 was a momentous occasion…both due to my entry into this beautiful world and on a more somber note the day Anwar Sadat, the President of Egypt was assassinated. I remember the birthdays of my childhood [...]

Prom is a Wonderful Thing

Prom is a Wonderful Thing

Recently the story of 14 year old Katelyn Norman of LaFollette, TN was brought to my attention, and while I am often reminded of my own cancer experience when the experiences of other young adult cancer patients and survivors are brought to my attention, Katelyn’s stood out. It isn’t so much that we share the [...]

Lance Cheated…And I Don’t Care

Lance Cheated…And I Don’t Care

Since the Arizona Cardinals season began to evaporate in Week 5 this year, I have done my level best to avoid as much of maybe my guiltiest pleasure of all…Sports Talk Radio. It was a refreshing few months, living in ignorance as the local hosts destroyed my favorite team, and while I suffered through every [...]

A Message from Branden

A Message from Branden

Dear Supporters of The Branden Lombardi Foundation,
What a crazy year it has been! I know that you have not heard much from either me or the Foundation this past year, and that is with good reason. The past year has been the most trying of my thirty year existence, including the several years where I [...]

Bringing Smiles to Cardon Children’s Medical Center

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you do for our patients and families.  We had a pizza party a few weeks back in POTC (our outpatient treatment center) and were able to feed six of our families who were there all day long.  It was a fantastic day and all [...]

Third Place…Meh

So it’s been three weeks since I last posted here on the site, writing about Lance Armstrong and his quest for another Tour De France.  Well with their last ride into Paris occuring tomorrow morning, Lance will finish in third place in the 2009 Tour…certainly nothing to sneeze at, and quite enjoyable for a sports [...]

Viva Lance!

This Saturday our glorious country will celebrate two hundred thirty-three years of Independence…better known as the Fourth of July which as many of our holidays has devolved into a day to see how much beer and how many hot dogs we Americans can consume in a twenty-four hour period.
While we gorge ourselves on backyard bbq [...]

Another Special Day!

Ever since I was diagnosed with Cancer more than ten years ago, I have steadily added special dates and milestones to the Lombardi Family celebration/acknowledgement calendar.  Many of these days we let pass with nothing more but a mention of the event that occurred on that date ten years ago, seven years ago, five years [...]

Another Great Tournament!

Well the 10th Annual Chip In To Fight Cancer Charity Golf Tournament has come and gone!  What an amazing, amazing day!  Joined by 100 of my closest friends on Saturday afternoon for a great day of golf…capped off by the most lively and entertaining awards dinner I think we have had in the past ten [...]
