In August 2009 my Dad was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer – de-differentiated chondrosarcoma.  The diagnosis was made after he broke his femur during light stretching.  In order to halt any spread of the cancer my dad lost his leg.  The prognosis after-wards looked good as no cancer was seen in the rest of his body.

In early April 2010 my Dad admitted himself to the hospital with pain over his entire body and general weakness.  We thought it was due to overexertion at rehab but the diagnosis soon came back that the cancer had returned and was rampant throughout his ribs and spine.   A little under 4 weeks later on April 27th my Dad died in hospice care.
Calling my father tough would be an understatement.  Physically he was strong, but mentally he was a beast.  To this day I can count on my hands the number of people who have butted heads with my Dad and won.  There was nothing my Dad ever wanted that he did not achieve.  He raised me and my brother as a single parent in NYC and provided more for us than I could ever have asked for.  He was a dedicated father, brother, son and uncle.  Family and friends were everything to my father and he proved that every day of his life.
I will love you always dad.  You are my hero. 
RIP Paul Ruskin, 11/11/1952 – 4/27/2010.

Life Lessons


You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.


Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.


Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The man I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.


I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.
