So to start the festivities - here's some GREAT news regarding Cheri Edwards. She's someone we helped, along with the Heart and Soul Fund, this summer. She's the sister of one of our oldest and dearest friends, Mark Flynn, who's as close to being our brother as any living human is. I hope you'll agree the news that was received on December 2 of... this year is extremely joyful! Here's a great post from her daughter, Cindy Edwards.
"Today is officially the best day ever!!!!!!! My strong, amazing, beautiful, wonderful, resilient, fantastic mother Cheri Edwards is IN REMISSION !!!!!!!!! I'm so proud of you mommy! You never gave up and you endured things no one should ever have to. You stayed positive through it all and never let the monster win. You're incredible and I love you more than anything! Congratulations mommy, you did it!"

On January 21, 2016, Lisa Serio will celebrate 5 years of remission from her cancer! A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION!
We were honored to help her family 5 years ago and since then have been blessed to have the Serio family become such a big part of our foundation.
Lisa is our "Shot Cop" annualy at our golf event - serving shots and libations while arresting many of the golfers. Her husband, Chef Danny, has given so much time and energy on our board and at cooking events to raise money to help even more families.
finds us sharing some news from a family we helped last year – Kathleen Coughlin O’Malley. She’s shared some beautiful pictures with us of her twins and some fantastic news about her remission!
“What a year! I am happy to say that I am going into 2016 in remission and have beat cancer! I had my last of big surgeries, which was the reconstruction 2 weeks ago and I am healing really well. I also had my ovari...es and Fallopian tubes removed a month ago as a precaution since I am BRCA2 positive. I am looking forward to ringing in the New Year getting stronger every day and hoping to start back at work. The twins are almost 11 months old and are crawling and getting into everything. They are truly our little Angels and we can't wait to continue to watch them grow in 2016. We are so blessed with health, family and friends and are thankful for all of the support we have received this past year.”
