Caro­line Sul­li­van McAuliffe, who was di­ag­nosed with can­cer in 2016 and as a re­sult spent three weeks in the care of the hos­pi­tal and its staff, said that this fundraiser is all about giv­ing back to the won­der­ful staff in the hos­pi­tal.

“The care and at­ten­tion that I re­ceived in that hos­pi­tal dur­ing my treat­ment was sim­ply un­be­liev­able,” she said, speak­ing to The Ker­ry­man on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

“I’ll never for­get how well they treated me there, this fundraiser is all about me giv­ing back to those amaz­ing and won­der­ful peo­ple,” she con­tin­ued.
