Brooke, the always smiling and courageous warrior, battled Neuroblastoma cancer for 8 years of her 12 years of life on earth.
Brooke has been my Dana-Farber Patient partner. I've run the Boston Marathon for the past 3 years in her honor and to raise funds for Dana-Farber cancer Research. I had the privilege of meeting Brooke and Amy at the Pasta Dinner the evening before the marathon. Although I live in Michigan and they live in New Jersey, we stay in communication through FB.

On June 12 at 1:04 a.m., Brooke peacefully was passed from the loving arms of her Mother, Amy, to the arms of Jesus.
Now Amy needs our help. The National Funeral Directors Association puts the average cost of a funeral at more than $10,000. This figure does NOT cover many common expenses such as cemetery costs, markers, flowers, or obituaries.
Please . . . let's help Amy out!
Any amount you are able to assist with is greatly appreciated!! ALL funds donated to this Go Fund Me campaign will go directly to Amy's account to help with funeral expenses incurred.
Amy has suffered the greatest loss of all . . . her daughter. Let's help her out by assisting with the funeral costs.
