My Story

Lincoln Womeldorph endured much and complained little during his short stay here on earth. If you met him, you know that he exuded such positive energy and hope. He always smiled through the most dismal situations as if he knew something we did not. He was beautiful to the extreme as if he was made by God that way so that anyone and everyone nearby would take notice of him. Once he got your attention, his deep blue eyes would hold you and absorb you and make you experience some of heaven here on earth. This is not an exaggeration but rather feedback his parents would get from those who were fortunate enough to meet "Lincy". Even those who only met Lincoln online were forever changed and affected similarly. The world is forever changed by having him for the brief time that we did. Lincy Womeldorph lost his fight against cancer on 1/12/08 when his compromised immune system could not fight an otherwise normal common virus (Adenovirus). He was at the end of treatment in NYC. Plans were in place for him to return home at the end of January cancer-free and to be reunited with his sisters and brother. We will carry our sorrow forever as we mourn our loss. We are forever changed by having him for the brief time that we did. Lincoln will continue to change lives and encourage reform and advancement in cancer treatment.
