Beautiful Bridget Egan Fights Cancer With a Crowd of Neighbors This Saturday at Bourbon Street

Thanks to Jim McMahon! If it helps people, the word is spread by neighborhood firefighting hero, Lt. Jim McMahon!

Bridget Egan,daughter of Brian and Pat and sister of Jack and Nora, is a St. Cajetan's Girl and beautiful young woman. Bridget is a fixture at Kennedy Park helping girls warm up their pitching arms and encouraging little ladies to do their best. Let's get out and warm-up our pitching arms for Bridget.

Bridget was diagnosed with stage 3 Adeno Carcinoma in May 2010 that had spread to her left and right lymph nodes - a very rare form of the cancer. Bridget decided to pursue her treatment at the University of Chicago. She is pushing through her last few weeks of chemo and radiation and gets to go home the week of Thanksgiving – with a lot to be thankful for.

Needless to say, Bridget has had a long, hard, painful last few months and more lies ahead of her. And, as to be expected, she has kept everyone laughing and positive through it all. I do not have to tell all of you how truly incredible Bridget is. She is absolutely bursting with love every day of her life- lighthearted, open, and genuine. She has always been so eager to help others and now it is our turn to show her how truly loved and appreciated she is!

I want to have Bridget's benefit info posted on a few other local blogs, including my own. Do you know how I can get a few different pictures of this young lady?
