Day 8: Community
Paul is a PSU alum and I can tell you that as long as I’ve known him, he has ALWAYS stopped and given to the PSU student canners.
This was before we personally knew the reality of childhood cancer.
In March 2015, we were asked to speak at what will be our children’s high school for their ASHS Mini-THON. Shane was just beginning to decline and passed two weeks after attending this event.
We felt it was important for us to tell a little about his story and more importantly to thank these students for all their efforts in raising awareness and funding for childhood cancer.
These students continue to amaze and inspire us.
Two rivals, Cheltenham and Abington will come together in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. We are honored to attend and be one of the beneficiaries of the football game tomorrow, Friday September 9th, along with Sara’s Smiles, Team Nate for the Parkway Run, CURE Childhood Cancer and the Four Diamonds Fund!
Paul is a Cheltenham alum and his parents still reside in Cheltenham. We live in Abington and Chase and Ella attend McKinley Elementary. Our family is tied to both of these communities.
