Rebecca Needs Your Support!

Our daughter, Rebecca (Becky) O’Doherty’s fight for her health has reached a critical point. After 10 years of treatment and testing she will undergo the second part of a transplant to repair her immune system, whose dysfunction has caused significant neurological, metabolic, gastrointestinal damage. After graduating from UNC and the Robertson Scholars Program in 2005, Becky committed her full passion and energy to working with young people at Appalshop in Whitesburg, Kentucky. Just as Becky was making significant progress on issues of poverty and educational attainment, she was forced to leave the work and young people that she loves to undergo full-time medical treatment .

The Strides for Recovery Walk went beautifully last Monday evening in New York and earlier in the month in Virginia! Check out the photos of our caring and wonderful walkers!   We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to join us and everyone who supported us virtually with your donations and good wishes!

We wanted to let everyone know that every donation (no matter the size) will be important and make a difference in Rebecca receiving critical medical care that is not covered by insurance. If you can, please join us in donating to make her next phase of medical treatment possible.

Thank you so much for all your love and support!
