BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Irvin Burl Shawe
August 8, 1930 - April 7, 2014
In lieu of flowers and in celebration of the very full life of Irvin "Big Irv" Shawe, we are raising funds in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. Their mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.
Big Irv spent the last year bravely fighting leukemia with the help of an incredibly dedicated medical and support team. While this period was difficult for all involved, it was also a time of great joy for our family as Irv was able to celebrate the 5th birthday of his granddaughter Ava, attend Super Bowl XLVIII, and spend more time with his family in the New York area.
We greatly appreciate the tremendous outpouring of support at this time.
In love and gratitude,
The Shawe Family
