THE STORY:

Brain Battle: A Benefit for Jill Richards

Where: Jaime's Restaurant 25 High Street North Andover, MA 01845

Time: 12:00 – 3:00 p.m.

You don’t know Jill? If you have been following Jill on Facebook over the last two years, you probably know that she is head over heels for her puppy Zoey, crazy about her nephews, loved by her family, in a happy relationship, and cared about by a very lucky group of friends.

What you might not know is that Jill, just 28 years old, has been battling pineoblastoma, a very rare type of cancer affecting the pineal gland in the brain causing a buildup of fluid. Jill was diagnosed in April 2013 after suffering from severe headaches and multiple visits to the doctor and hospital. She underwent her first surgery in May to remove the tumor followed by another surgery to place a shunt due to the high amount of fluid on her brain. After the two successful surgeries, Jill underwent an aggressive regimen of chemotherapy and radiation to her head and spine. She traveled into Boston almost daily for seven months for various treatments, blood work, and lengthy MRIs. Jill was given an all-clear report in early 2014. This past June, a new tumor surfaced and Jill underwent another surgery. She will be undergoing rigorous treatments to beat it once again.

Jill is a caring, thoughtful, fun, energetic, and positive person has had to endure more in the last two years than any 28 year old should have to. She has sat through countless hours of treatments, undergone numerous surgeries, and has overcome the side effects of her treatments without complaints or asking for help.

With many months of treatment ahead, Jill will need some help with this battle. On October 24th, we welcome you to join us at a Brain Battle: A Benefit for Jill Richards. Come alone or bring friends, and team up for an afternoon of trivia! Not so good at trivia? Enjoy a silent auction and raffle with drinks and appetizers to be served.

If you cannot attend this night, please feel free to make a donation on this site to help Jill get through the months ahead.
