Ryan Feeney of Melrose is a great kid who is dealing with a tough disease: Neurofibromatosis. The Feeney Family is having a fund-raiser to help find a cure on this Thursday, August 4, at the Knights of Columbus. Details are below. If you want to contribute online, here is the fund-raising page for the September 10 Coast to the Cure bike ride, which also benefits neurofibromatosis research. Ryan is a student in Melrose who participates in countless community activities. He is a brave young man and a real inspiration to us all. It is an incredibly worthy cause, and all donations are much appreciated.
