Help Owen Fight Cancer – Join #McConnellStrong

To know Owen McConnell is to love him.  He is one of the finest members of our community.  You’ve undoubtedly heard his unmistakable voice cheering on our kids from the sidelines.  Whether it is his own children, Mahopac varsity athletes or a child from our surrounding towns, his support for our community, and beyond, is unrivaled. 

Now, we need to show that same support to Owen, his wife Joanne and their four young children Finian, Mia, Roma and Kaia. 

Owen was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.  He is set to begin treatment and may be unable to work.  As usual, Owen is not worried about himself but rather his family as medical expenses will begin to add up. 

Let’s show Owen and this amazing family how much they are loved as they navigate this new reality.   Owen and Joanne are pillars to our community.  They came to America to raise a family, start a business and live the American dream.   This will be catastrophic for them and that is why we are asking for your help.

Please join us to contribute to #McConnellStrong to give this gentle giant, Owen McConnell, a fighting chance to beat this demon and help take care of his medical expenses and family.
