This is a cause dear to my heart, having lost my husband Kevin to this cancer at the age of 56. I have joined forces with four other wonderful local women, Mary and Kristin Angell from Bethel who lost husband/father Ken at the age of 57 and Ellen Klaus from Newtown who lost husband Berny at the age of 50.
