Brian Murphy - Boys' College Fund

Hello friends,

My name is Michael Fisher, and like many of you, I am fortunate enough to call myself a friend of Brian Murphy. 

Grade school and high school classmates. CYO teammates. College roommates. Beach house buddies. Youth sports coaches, Boston refugees, co-workers and of course - Brian's incredible family. So many of us have shared the gift of Brian’s unbounded energy, kindness and humor.

Whenever or however you met Brian, you’ve doubtlessly come to appreciate how special he is. Brian brings endless fun and laughter to our lives.  Be it a quick text, one of his amazing “you had to be there” stories, or a tip on the over/under for the Slustk vs. Minsk match in the Belarus Premier League (if one just happened to ask), Brian has given us a lifetime of moments that demand a smile when we think of them.

As most of you know from his incredible FB post , Brian has battled cancer for several years . He has endured numerous treatments, surgeries, progress and, sadly, setbacks. Despite the immense physical and emotional costs, Brian has been Brian: positive, optimistic and brave beyond measure. He has been focused on the present. He has been generous with his friends. Above all else, he has been dedicated to being a great father for Christopher, Daniel and Luke.

Brian is continuing the fight, but the gravity of the situation is significant and we want to express our love and admiration for Brian and his family now.

Brian is the beneficiary of this effort.  The specific purpose of the GoFundMe is to fund a trust that Brian established for future college and emergency expenses for the boys. It will also give us a chance to express our gratitude for all he gave us.

We realize that attaining our target goal will require an outpouring of generosity from a large network, but please know that any amount counts, big or small. We hope you will help make this a success.

Sincerely,

Grateful friends and family of Brian Murphy
