On April 25, 2011, our family friend Kathy passed away at the age of 44 after a 2 ½ year battle with ovarian cancer. She left behind her husband, 2 teenage children as well as many family members and friends. She also left behind so many memories. People were drawn to Kathy through her vibrant personality and unique sense of humor which she maintained throughout her treatment. Prior to being diagnosed with cancer, Kathy was part of the nursing team at South Shore Hospital.
On April 16, 2012, as we near the 1st Anniversary of Kathy’s passing, I will be running the Boston Marathon for South Shore Hospital Cancer Care in Kathy’s memory. I hope you will help with a donation to support the South Shore Hospital Cancer Center and to help Kathy’s family continue with their healing process by honoring her memory with me.
