Recently, Logan and Grant Gallagher, students at St. Benedict School, Holmdel, participated in The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The brothers, originally got involved walking in memory of a deceased family member, Miki Murphy, who eventually lost her battle with cancer.
This year, the boys walked as a celebration to their schoolmate, Sammi Whelan, who has been fighting this disease for over a year. The Gallagher’s wanted to do something that celebrated Sammi’s spirit and tremendous courage. Logan made badges with Sammi’s picture and had it signed by a celebrity to present to Sammi along with a tee shirt and some pictures from the day. Logan stated, "Anything that helps to keep a smile on her face in the days ahead is the very least that we can do."
