Holly Jean Philipp, June 4,1972 – May 2, 2008

This video was lovingly put together by Holly’s cousin, Stephen Marsh. It was presented during the Philipp/Marsh/Mixter Family Reunion, where it was received with much love, sadness, and more than a few tears.

Holly is survived by her mother Jacquie & stepfather Ray; brothers Jon, Todd, & Scott; her sister-in-laws Kari and me; her all too-young six-year old son Alex; and the rest of the Philipp/Marsh/Mixter clan who are too many to name but who continue to hold her in their hearts.

In memory of Holly, and in honor of a few female family and friends I know who are cancer survivors, please consider sponsoring me for the 2009 Swim a Mile for Women with Cancer.


Please sponsor me for Swim a Mile

In memory of Holly Philipp, and in honor of the female family and friends I know who have survived cancer, I am once again participating in the Swim A Mile for Women with Cancer.

This is an annual event sponsored by the Oakland Women’s Cancer Resource Center, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to:

To empower women with cancer to be active and informed consumers and survivors; to provide community for women with cancer and their supporters; to educate the general community about cancer; and to be actively involved in the struggle for a life-affirming, cancer-free society.
