Dear Family, Friends and Supporters:

We are writing to you today on behalf of our wife and mother, Kass McGonagle. This September, Kass suffered a catastrophic illness due to a stroke. She is now paralyzed on her left side and is currently in Magee Rehabilitation Hospital working very hard learning how to work with her new condition. She is unable to walk and do many of the things we each take for granted. There are a lot of unknowns with some of Kass’s conditions, but we do know that she has an uphill battle ahead of her. Kass continues to remain strong and determined to make as much progress as possible.

Our Baby Sister, Kass, is working so hard to overcome her stroke. She has been so strong throughout the last 21/2 years caring for Sean and working a full-time job now it is time for all of us to support her and her Son through yet another challenge which has been given to this family.

As her Sister I ask you to continue with you love, support and generosity towards the Fmily and help by giving as much as you can to Sean & Kathleen to help with the financial needs.

Thank you and try to image, if you possibly can, dealing with their situation and still having a smile on your face everyday and the determination to continue working hard to get back as much as you can. Love you Kass, Dennis, Jennifer, Kelly, Sarah & Sean
