In honor of the holiday season, the Micromedia family asks that you keep the Alice Swann Ovarian Cancer Memorial Fund in mind.
Alice Swann, wife of Stewart Swann, President/Publisher of Micromedia Publications, passed away on October 17, 2018 after a four and a half year battle with ovarian cancer. Alice was not only loved and cherished by her close family and friends, but also by her Micromedia family, having served as treasurer here for many years.
Alice and Stewart Swann’s daughter Chrissy Morrison is requesting that those who wish to participate in holiday giving this year do so in honor of her mother, Alice Swann.
Morrison said: “My mother, Alice Swann has been an integral part of Micromedia Publications for many years. Unfortunately, she lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer last month. As a Registered Nurse, I knew that day was coming, however, it came much sooner than I expected.
“Over the course of her illness, I watched my mother endure treatments that kept her in bed for weeks at a time. I spent countless hours in her home administering IV fluids, and medications just to keep her comfortable. My father, Stew Swann waited on her around the clock, because there were days she just couldn’t get out of bed. I can’t tell you how many times I had to drop everything to rush her to her Oncologist, or the Emergency Room due to the many side effects and issues she encountered during her treatments.
“Despite everything she went through, she did it all with grace. She continued putting her children and grandchildren ahead of herself when she was able. Even on the day of her death, she was asking for treatment, because she didn’t want to leave her kids. I know in my heart she is in a much better place, and no longer suffering in agonizing pain, but nothing can take away the pain of losing your mother.
“I humbly ask you honor her memory with a donation to the Alice Swann Ovarian Cancer Memorial Fund, so others may not have to suffer the same fate as my mother.”
