THE STORY:

"You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have." This quote is one I have heard multiple times. However, three years ago, this quote became a reality to my family. 

The life shattering word "cancer" walked into our lives in November 2012 and soon began to flip our world upside down. I kept replaying the words over and over, "Mom was diagnosed with stage 3D Colon Cancer." How could this be? It was a routine colonoscopy, she was feeling fine when I talked to her in the morning. After going through surgery and six months of chemotherapy... that word cancer, has reoccured two more times and shook up our lives every time. Cancer has changed us all in multiple ways.

Around the time of my Mom's original diagnosis, Sparrow's Nest had been established. My Mom followed Krista's story and adventure and knew there was a need for this type of comfort and service. As a family, we supported Sparrow's Nest with food supplies and homemade Irish Soda Bread. We have spread the word to friends, family, neighbors and co-workers about this amazing organization. We have been blessed with generous contributions ourselves and have not yet needed Sparrow's Nest assistance, but it is reassuring to know that Krista's mission would allow us not to worry and focus on her getting better. 

I am joining the Sparrow's Nest team to run the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon this coming November. This is close to my heart and my Mom's name will be on the back of my shirt, giving me strength as I cross the finish line. 

Your thoughtful donation today means the world to a family in need.  It means a sick mom can get extra sleep.  It means a child can have a healthy meal while mom focuses on getting better.  It means a grocery bill can be cut in half while a family’s expenses blow up on copays and out of pocket medical expenses.  It means more than you can imagine.

Please support our team and make a tax deductible donation today on this secure website.  Donations can also be mailed to:  

Sparrow’s Nest Charity, 942 Route 376, Suite 217, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590
