Night for AVA Considine

“It’s cancer.” Those are two words an individual never wants to hear in their lifetime. Two words that will place your life in complete turbulence. Two words that take you on a journey that you had always heard of but hoped you would never be on, especially when it is not your journey, but your child’s. Our “journey” began Nov. 13, 2017, when our then two and half year-old daughter, Ava Considine, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of pediatric cancer.

That is why we would like to invite everyone to a Night for Neuroblastoma! Come join family, friends and neighbors on Saturday, March 16, at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 545 Medford St, and help raise funds to be donated to the childhood cancer organization Beat Nb. Any type of donation or support would be helpful towards the cause, whether it is time, sponsorship, or raffle donations. (Tickets are $25/person, and are extremely limited as the time is very close to being sold out!)

If interested in tickets or donating raffle prizes, please RSVP for this event and contact: Ayla Considine: (857)-445-5644, Dan Considine: (617)-233-3067, Shannon Considine: (617)-872-5369, Patty Ann Woods: (617)-201-4784.
