WELCOME FREINDS AND FAMILY!!
As we approach and pass the year mark of Jims passing, we will not let his memory die. We continue to run in his honor in the Miles for Melanoma in Fullerton Ca.
James Harrell lost his battle to Melanoma March 28th 2010. He has been a deputy for the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department for 30 years. He was an air rescue paramedic flying in air rescue five. He has saved hundreds of lives. He has received the medal of valor, meritorious conduct and many others for his service. He pulled two kids out of an overflowing aquaduct just minutes before they would be killed. He saved a family from the malibu fires. He also saved countless numbers of people off the sides of the mountains. He was eventually diagnosed with Stage 3 Melanoma in 2007. Finally 3 years later, Jim lost the battle to melanoma. He is no longer in pain anymore. No more week long chemo stay in the hospital, no more cough that wont stop, no more loosing hair, no more walking with a cane, no more cancer. He is missed dearly by all his family and friends. He is looking down on us saying we will see him soon enough. No more cancer is good enough for me. Jim was as brave as anyone could ever be all the way to the end and thats all we could hope for.

We love you dad and you are missed every day!!
