Each year I host several different events for my birthday and invite my friends and family. There is usually a dinner out at a restaurant, and something held at our home. Then there is often an event to get people out. We've gone apple picking, bowling, and one year I flew to Germany and had my birthday over there.
This year, there will be a dinner and an open house at our home, but I have decided the EVENT will be a walk to support Breast Cancer. I have known several women who have fought it; not all have survived. I will be walking in this event in honor of one of the most remarkable women I have ever had the privilege to know...Mrs. Arvelyn Ferrelli. Mother to my best friend, Alexandra, grandmother to 3.37 wonderful kids, and a woman of true independence, you would be hard pressed to meet another person so genuinely kind-hearted, optimistic, or persevering. I am often in awe of her, and not just because she hosts the best Thanksgiving dinners (to which I invite myself 364 days in advance)!
I ask you to join me in participating in any of the following ways:
- Walk with me (well, you can run, but wait for me at the finish line)
- Cheer on the (I hope there is one) group along the course.
I hope you will be able to join Jonathan and me. Join the group (Seneca's Bday), donate, or come show your support in Portsmouth.

Research is a critical component to ending breast cancer, but research does little to aid the anxiety of a patient who is going through treatment TODAY.
While it may not be surprising that cancer can prompt distress, what is striking is that distress can interfere with the body's immune system and have a negative impact on the course of the disease.
That is why we have helped thousands of local patients by providing them with financial assistance, household needs, comforting gifts, wellness programs, family support, travel scholarships and more.
We will even fulfill a last wish...
