The Carmie Brady Foundation lost a valued member on October 18th 2012. Many of you will remember Matthew Pitera from last years fundraiser. He was unable to attend the event in person so instead he made an emotionally charged video for us to play. Matt’s fight with cancer lasted over four years, from the time he was 12 till he was 16. During those four years he never passed up the chance to get up in front of a crowd and promote awareness and to raise funds for childhood cancers. His smile and charisma lit up any room. He was and always will be a hero to many. We know Matt will be with us as we continue fighting to help families with children afflicted with serious illnesses.
