BENEFITING: Allyson Whitney Foundation
EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2014
The Allyson Whitney Foundation is a non-profit organization that empowers and fights for the interest of young adults with rare cancers. Their vision is to improve the quality of life, as well as provide emotional support for patients. The foundation primarily provides individuals with grants to ease their financial burden so that they can concetrate their energy on healing. This was Allyson's wish. Allyson was a wonderful young women who went to St. John's and was a good friend of my son William. I had the pleasure of meeting Allyson on several occasions when I traveled to New York. Allyson lost her fight with cancer on Thanksgiving 2011. She was only 25. She was a wonderful person with a huge heart and a beautiful smile. She is missed and will forever be in our hearts.
