With grit, determination, and many smiles Pamela lived forty-four months after her diagnosis of a rare form of lung cancer. The Abigail Alliance was instrumental in getting Pamela into the Lucanix vaccine compassionate use program. Unfortunately because of the time it took, Pamela was in a progressive state and it was ineffective. Married thirty-three happy years to Doan, she showered her four children with love and devotion. Her love of life was enormous. Her capacity to love was unlimited extending to many others, including friends of her children. At a life celebration party in early December 2010 many of these young people came from across the country to honor Pamela and to make a tribute to a life well lived.
