Kevin Edwards, Treasurer

Friend to Jenny

My connection with the Barnett Searing National Cancer Foundation started at family dinners, football games, and concerts with my friend, John Searing.

John and I became friends in high school, and I spent a lot of time at his house with his family. John and his sisters were close in age, so we often ended up hanging out with his sisters as well. That is where I met Jenny Searing. Jenny was fun, and John and Jenny together were hilarious. When John and his family were going through the cancer diagnosis and treatments with Jenny, I wanted to help in any way that I could.

I am happy to be a part of the BSNCF Board, because I feel it’s a way to continue helping, not just the Searing family, but other families who are dealing with the same diagnosis. As Treasurer, I am proud that we have raised more than a quarter of a million dollars in our first fifteen years and look forward to exceeding that figure in the coming years.

I have been with the Foundation from the start and am happy to see its revitalization. I’m an avid cyclist and love the idea of incorporating the opportunity to represent BSNCF through athletics to inspire others. Most importantly, I have two daughters of my own and am proud that they see me helping others.
