Dear Friends of Franny, Hope you are doing well and having a lovely holiday season. And thank you for helping to make this the best Christmas ever for the O'Neill's!! Your generosity makes life a little brighter for sick kids and their families!! Brian O’Neill, father of Jimmy “The Crusher” O’Neill wanted to share with you that Jimmy was able to return to school this Monday, December 11th after a very long time enduring the cure of cancer. "His school is fantastic and pulled out all the stops. We’ve been waiting for this day for such a long time. It’s hard to believe that Jimmy was diagnosed in the 3rd grade and is coming back to a new floor, with new teachers and classmates in the 6th grade. Once we got the all-clear from his doctors, he couldn’t get back in the classroom soon enough! He just turned 11 this Thursday, 12/14. His older brother Tommy will be 13 in January and his sister Meghan is 9. They were both so happy to walk their brother into school Monday. This time last year, we were sitting in Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center getting daily transfusions and not making counts for chemo. It was a difficult 2023 for certain, but this year Jimmy’s back at school and feeling great. All of the many prayers are being heard and Jimmy is thankfully getting better by the day. We could not think of a better Christmas gift than a healthy Jimmy As always, thank you, Mary and the Frances Pope Memorial Foundation for everything you have done for us. Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!" Love, Brian, Kerrie, Tommy, Meghan and JIMMY "THE CRUSHER" O’Neill
