THE STORY:

My dear friend from childhood, Shannon Hawkins, passed away at the age of 43 after a seven-year battle with breast cancer. I was blessed to share a lot of laughs with Shannon just prior to her death but I never knew she was dying. She never told me. She didn't tell many of us.


Shannon did a lot of good for a lot of kids at the YMCA in Washington, D.C. Our friend Steve Haddad began a fundraiser in her honor to benefit the kids at the YMCA. Following are Steve's words:

 

"In this spirit, we are proud to announce the establishment of The Shannon Hawkins Memorial Scholarship Fund for Youth & Teen Aquatics – an ongoing endowment fund to support swim instruction for underprivileged children through the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington. 

For much of her life, Shannon was determined to “waterproof” kids – teaching them the basic survival skill of swimming and helping to transform a child’s fear of the water into certain joy and confidence. Even as she underwent rounds of chemotherapy treatment, and after a double mastectomy, she still gave youth swimming lessons at the local YMCA. Teaching children inspired Shannon – and in doing so, she has inspired us to find a way for her legacy of courage and grace to live on.

Please cinsider donating to help us honor our friend and continue to help the kids in the YMCA. Thank you."
