THE STORY:

I'm setting up this fundraiser as a dedication to my mother, Susan Recchio Kogler. My mother was born and raised in the town of Patchogue, attended Patchogue-Medford High School, taught elementary education at Bay Elementary there for over 30 years, and raised her own family there, as well.
On June 15th, 2011 she lost her 2nd battle with breast cancer. Fourteen years before she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, After a mastectomy and a year and a half of chemotherapy and radiation she was cancer free. She dedicated the rest of her life to learning/raising more awareness about breast cancer. Mostly, I remember long conversations late into the evening where she would talk on the phone to a relative, friend, or maybe even a friend of a friend who had recently been diagnosed lending a listening ear and a calming influence. About ten years later they discovered the cancer had returned. And, after four and half years of various chemo treatments lost her battle.
My father set up this scholarship with a goal of $1000 a year to a Patchogue-Medford student who qualifies and has a focus on primary education and has been funding it himself these first couple years.
Apparently, no one applied this year and the money will carry over till next year. I'd like to raise not only money, but awareness of the scholarship in the Patchogue-Medford area to help keep her memory alive.
