Support Sean Kelly's Family


We are fundraising to support the wonderful family of Sean Kelly, who helped him stare down a nasty head and neck cancer for nearly a decade.   Sean passed away in the arms of his sweet Diane on September 5, 2017.
You can read Sean's amazing story on his 
CaringBridge site .  



If you were a part of the Kelly's life at any point of this journey you know that Sean and Diane kept their focus on their family, raising two strong and beautiful girls, Madeline and Gabi.    


Years of treatments, too many surgeries to count, doctor visits, lost work days  and the list goes on - have taken a huge financial toll on this dear family,  stripping away life insurance,  retirement plans and any savings.
Add to that,  Sean wasn't able to work for the past two years and Diane went through two layoffs.  



Diane and her girls are facing some major financial hurdles.  The Kelly family has a wide circle of wonderful friends and if we all pitch in, we can help ease some of this financial stress . 

We are fundraising:
To help offset the huge financial burden from years of medical treatment.  

To help support Madeline and Gabi's college fund.  Both girls are now in college. 

To ensure that Diane and the girls stay in the house she and Sean designed and built for their family.   To help them care for the house.

To help the family rebuild their savings.

 Let's help Diane keep her focus on her sweet girls  as they start the healing process.    The Kelly family has given so much to others and now needs our help.  We can do this!

Thank you!
