My Why

Megan Barry was only 9 years old when her grandfather, Mauro “Butch” Barry, died of prostate cancer in November 2007. She didn’t really understand the disease. But she wasn’t too young to make a promise to her grandmother, Carol Barry.

“I realized that, instead of holding onto my negative feelings, I could turn it into something positive by giving back to people going through cancer just like John did.”
“Dad was always saying ‘I’m going to fight it. I am not ready to give up.’"
