Brian’s Legacy: Lots of Love, and Parrott’s Pals

Last week the world lost a good man.  Many of you know Megan from my memoir Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star.  In that book, I referred to her as “Tami,” but from now on we’ll call her the beautiful name I know her by:  MEGAN. 

On Friday May 23, Megan’s husband finally lost his fiercely fought battle against brain cancer.

Brian opened his heart during the course of his ilness, sharing with anyone who wanted to know what it was like to suffer through this tragedy.  You can read his blog here

And in the true giving spirit of this man, he began a support group for children of parents with cancer.  You can contribute to this group at:
