Cynthia, a loving wife and mother to two incredible boys, ages 5 and 6, was diagnosed with Paget’s Breast Cancer in October 2017. This is a rare form of cancer that only affects 1-4% of all breast cancer cases.
A New Yorker, crafter, athlete, gardner, mom and wife, Becky has a full schedule. But when Amanda Bruneau, her close friend and Community Engagement Manager at Family Reach, told her about our Napa Valley half marathon, she knew it was an opportunity she couldn't pass up.
To continue our volunteer blog series, we are excited to highlight Jean Monopoli. Jean is a proud Women's Council member and Family Reach volunteer. In addition to the council meetings Jean attends, she regularly visits our Boston-based office to lend a hand wherever needed.
On Monday April 16, Rusty Bilodeau will be running in our country’s most historic marathon, the Boston Marathon. This will be his second time running on behalf of Family Reach to raise money for families battling cancer. To help inspire our Reach Athletes during their training, we match them with one of our cancer-fighting heroes! It’s one of the many ways we love making donor - patient connections. Rusty is proudly running in honor of 15-year-old Camille, who has been fighting osteosarcoma, bone cancer, since she was 10 years old.
