Clio's College Fund

Cary passed away on August 24, 2017 after a sixteen-year fight with breast cancer. Prior to receiving disability, your donations kept house and home up and running. For all the support you offered while she lived, many thanks. She was endlessly appreciative, as are we.

When Cary was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she told a good friend that she just wanted to be here for her daughter’s High School Graduation. She was, and she was so proud of Clio.  Now that Cary is gone, rather than flowers or donations to a breast cancer fund, I know that her greatest wish would be for her daughter, Clio, to be supported in her education.  Nineteen-year-old Clio is currently on leave from Mass Art, where she has completed her freshman year, and will return in January after the heavy responsibilities of dispersing a household have lessened.

Remembrances of Cary can be made in the name of Clio Shaw through this site.  Your donations will be distributed as appropriate by Clio’s designated financial guardian, Jeff Lander.  Thank you for your friendship and generosity.
