A celebration of life. A life that belonged to what many have come to recognize as the strongest and most inspiring human they have ever met. Rumer Morrison, diagnosed with cancer in June of 2017, finally reached the end of her long and arduous journey on August 12th, 2019 at the age of 20. Taking a quote from her most recent Blog post (which you should certainly read as she was a phenomenal writer: https://rumermorrison.wixsite.com/mysite) “The last thing I ever want is for people to feel bad for me because of this.” Rumer does not want your pity. She does not want you to feel badly for her. She does not want anyone to dwell on her struggles. Rather, Rumer would want you to take life on head first as she did. To live life to its fullest. To tell those you care about how much you love them. To be vulnerable and ask for help when you need it. To be inspired by her strength and her perseverance through any adversity that you face. Rumer, 20 years young, was wise enough to know that everyone’s journey is different, but, no matter what, do not give up and do not try to go at it alone. Rumer, your spirit and your love of the world around you will live on to help inspire those to live as purely as you did. Rumer’s Life after Death Party will be held on Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at the Scholls Valley Lodge.
In order to help celebrate Rumer and her love for the beautiful game of lacrosse, Oregon Girls Lacrosse Association and a few active community members have decided to host a fundraiser for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital (at the request of her family). This will be in the form of a Lacrosse Game aptly titled Rumer’s Game. Please save the date for Sunday, October 27th, 2019 (more details will follow). Past teammates, current teammates, and local community members should contact Brittany Hartmann - email@example.com for any questions regarding participation, donations, or otherwise.
