In 2007 Jerry Jerowski died of brain cancer. His grand-daughter, Hannah Dashiell, decided to honor him by bringing the Seattle Cancer Walk to Bellingham.
Tragically, Hannah wasn’t able to complete that project. In January, Hannah died in a car crash on an icy Bellingham street.
Thanks to a dedicated small group of committed high school and college students, Hannah’s dream is being fulfilled. – See more at history of the Bellingham walk.
This Saturday is the first Brain Cancer Walk in Bellingham. Click here for all the details.
There is also a memorial fund accepting donations now in her name at Peoples Bank. Funds will be used to establish an ongoing scholarship fund for Bellingham area high school girls going into medicine. Her family hopes that this will be a robust legacy to keep Hannah’s healing, loving spirit alive. Click here to donate or learn more.
Hannah’s father, Dennis Dashiell, talked with Dave and Mandy on Thursday about keeping Hannah’s dreams alive. You can hear that interview here:
