Peter Hudson, Jan Taylor’s son, passed away on Sat. 3/26/11 after an 18 year long battle with a brain tumor. He died peacefully at home in Oakland, CA.
He was 41 years old, and was Administrative Manager for the Bay Area Youth Action Consortium (BAYAC). He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and coworkers. His life was too short, but the world is a better place for him having been in it.
If you feel like doing something in his memory, give to charity. You can choose your own, of course, but Pete had two suggestions:
The American Brain Tumor Association (www.abta.org) which supports the types of research that gave him 18 good years after his tumor was diagnosed. Let’s hope the research continues so people in the future get even more time.
And, Bay Area Community Resources (www.bacr.org), designated for the Bay Area Youth Action Consortium (BAYAC). Pete’s work at BAYAC over the last decade gave his life meaning and purpose.
