On November 1st, 2014, the We Love You, Colin team will be walking in the No Stomach for Cancer walk for the second year in memory of Colin M. Cooney. Colin was a beloved boyfriend, brother, uncle, great uncle.nephew, cousin and friend. Colin was kind, gentle and humble. During his life he worked and volunteered with people diagnosed with developmental disabilities and mental health conditions. Colin was a person of integrity who was trustworthy, compassionate, loving, loyal and faithful. One couldn't ask for a better friend and a woman couldn't ask for a more loving man to be her partner. He had a passion for sports and was a great golfer. Colin passed away from stage IV stomach cancer at 49 on March 2nd, 2013, 5 months after first noticeable symptoms, and 4 months after diagnosis.
Thank you Colin for the love and kindness you shared with us and the world throughout your life. We will always love you and miss you.
Also a special thank you to Colin's sister, Beth Maher who was our first donor with an extremely generous donation of $1000 check. Beth gave before I even started the crowdrise fundraiser so her name doesn't register to the right! Thank you so much Beth!!!
