Christmas Carrolling for
Tom & Keenie
Tom and Kathleen (Keenie) Carroll met when they were just 15 and 16 years old. After 40 years of marriage, they have four loving adult children and four grandchildren. They have devoted their lives to their successful careers, children and helping those around them. Tom is the rock of his family and the true patriarch. His children know they can go to him with anything at anytime and he will be there. Keenie has always been everyone's caretaker not only because she is a nurse, but she has a beautiful heart that shines in her personality and, of course, cooking.
Since being both diagnosed with different types of difficult cancers, their lives have changed dramatically. While their diagnoses are different, they share the cancer and the difficult treatments that come along with it. While their loved ones will never understand why both of their parents have to fight cancer together, they know that the unbelievable strength and determination of their parents can move this world, and can defy any medical odds or diagnoses.
Melissa, Christine, TC and Matthew would like to thank everyone for visiting this page and for their love and support over the past several months. Watching a loved one fight the beast of cancer is something that no one wants to ever face but to have both of your loving parents fighting the difficult diagnoses at the same time is something that most of us can not imagine. It is because of your love and support that they are each able to have the strength to help them fight.
Please note: You will not receive a ticket. There will be a "Will Call" list at the event.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a great success!
If you know the Carrolls, you know that they have always been a hard working family that would never ask for a hand-out. They raised their children with that same pride and instilled values in them that all four of their adult children bring to their work, their home and their families each and every day. At Kenny's Coalition, we respect the privacy and values of all of our families. We also understand the financial burden that all families face when a serious medical diagnosis arises. We are committed to helping even the proudest families with alleviating some of that extra burden.
If you would like to help us help them, you may use the unique "Donation" link above to make a donation to Kenny's Coalition that will do directly to Tom and Keenie. They will receive 100% of the money donated and your donations are tax deductible. Please join us in showing them that they are not alone in this journey and the world that they have done so much to help and make better is here to return the favors.
We have your back Tom & Keenie!!!
