Fundraiser For Sheila Leahy

$17,615 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 231 people in 51 months
Sheila Leahy has Stage 4 Single cell carcinoma.  Sheila lost her job several years back and Terry lost his more recently.  Terry is the color announcer for the UNO Mavericks Hockey Team and Sheila has been in charge of the Blue Line club and the annual Toys-forTots campaign  done each year at Christmas for children.  Both are loved and respected by so many in Omaha due to years of broadcasting at various Omaha stations and hugely in the hockey community.
Cancer is so very hard  and many families suffer.  But, with very little income even basic life necessities becomes  staggeringly difficult.  They need money for medical expenses, and even just basic living expenses.  Please help if you can.

Friday night was a phenomenal event and the love and support of family, friends and the entire midwest sports community made the Fundraiser for Sheila so worthwhile! It was wonderful seeing old friends and neighbors, meeting new friends and hugging family, but we missed our Sheila. She is in hospice care now and we are able to see her and show off the pictures and tell her if our progress. Terry, Sheila and Chris are constantly in our prayers and thoughts. Thank you friends for coming to their aid. We are deeply touched by your carrying prayers and loving generosity. May you be blessed beyond measure!

Thank you so much for all the love and support! The dinner dance for tomorrow night at Holy Cross School Gymnasium should be a blast with some truly AMAZING things to be auctioned off! There is a SIGNED jersey by the Chicago Blackhawks' Kane as well as tickets for a game! UNO has stepped up so big with sports camps for kids, tickets in the new arena or other great items for all ages! You of course, can contribute here, but come eat and dance as well! 5-11 p.m.

We have been keeping Sheila informed of our progress here and today it moved her to tears. I promised I would pass along ALL of the thanks and love she feels and her gratitude in this tough time. Already we have taken care of some things that have eased her mind tremendously. I wish there were magic words to make you understand the love and joy she and we all feel at this wonderful outpouring of love.
