Why I Participate in a Relay EventWelcome to Bob's Automotivator's
page! Almost all of us have been touched by cancer in some way so
we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in the
American Cancer Society Relay For Life event.
We have decided that we will dedicate our team's Relay this year in
Memory Of Paul Agakian. We did not know Paul for very long but he
had a very kind soul who always had a smile on his face. He was one
of our NAPA counterpersons in the York Maine store that we dealt with
when we bought Bob's. He would sometimes come to our shop and
apologize if someone messed up on parts that we would need. He also
made a $10 donation our 1st year doing The Relay for Life in
Maine(2011). He signed a foot with his childrens name on it 'Sean &
Grace'. I wish that I would have kept that foot.
In early November of 2011 while Paul was on vacation from NAPA he
experienced having a really bad headache. He went off to a local
doctor who then sent him off to Mass General for emergency surgery on
a tumor in his brain. Later Paul & his wife Bailey found out that
the tumor was cancerous and that it was a very rare aggressive cancer
called glioneuroma. Paul then started radiation concurrent with
Paul and his family put up a good fight for 14 months. But I am sad
to say that Paul's fight ended on January 52013 of this year. He
left behind a wife that he was only married to for 2 years A son
Sean who is 9 and a daughter Grace only 1 years old. Paul was
only 35 which is way to young to die. He had a lot more life and
adventures that he should be doing.
We hope that we can raise some money this year to help so that
someone else won't have to lose their husband and parent. We are
doing this for Paul and his family & friends who were by his side
every step of the way. I hope I explained what happened ok and not
to offend any of Paul's family. So if you would like to make a
donation or join our team that would be great. The more the merrier.
THIS RELAY IS FOR YOU PAUL AGAKIAN!!!! You will be truly loved & missed
