The Negley Family

When Katie met Ben a few years ago, she knew immediately that he was her soul mate, and they were engaged within the year.  Sadly, only seven months later, Ben was diagnosed with lymphoma.  During months of hospital stays and operations, Katie and Ben continued to plan their wedding and were married between chemotherapy treatments.  Beating all odds, Ben appeared to have won his battle with cancer and had an amazing 2018.  Ben's favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, won the Super Bowl, and his beautiful baby boy Jackson was born.  Ben and Katie were finally able to enjoy being healthy, married, and first time parents.  

Tragically, the young family's lives changed forever on March 1, 2019, when Ben was rushed to the hospital with a fever.  Despite doctors' best efforts, Ben's body could no longer fight, and he passed away later that day. 

Through all their trials and tribulations, Katie always remained positive and never showed weakness or defeat. Katie is a remarkable woman who constantly puts others before herself.  Our goal is to put Katie first now and help her and Jackson by giving them financial support in their time of need.  

If you could please find it in your hearts to join us in raising money for Katie and Jackson, we would be forever grateful.  Our hope is that the money raised will lighten some financial burden while Katie raises her son and mourns the loss of her husband and best friend.
