The family and friends of the Finnegan family have united to spread hope and raise money while their son, Shawn, battles leukemia.

Shawn Finnegan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, (ALL), in March 2012. ALL is a life-threatening blood cancer that requires 3 1/2 years of various treatments including chemotherapy, blood products, radiation, spinal taps, marrow transplants, and other medications and medical procedures. Frequent hospitalizations may occur due to infection caused by a compromised immune system, while extensive physical therapy is necessary to rehabilitate all damage accrued through the chemotherapy process.

The outpouring of love, prayers, and support has been immensely positive for the Finnegan family, and has provided the them the privilege of focusing on Shawn's recovery. Many supporters have requested that a donation fund be established for Shawn's behalf. Contributions will go towards all expenses related to Shawn's chemotherapy.

The Finnegan Family believes that Shawn will be able to beat his unfortunate diagnosis as the result of the outstanding medical care provided by CHOP nurses and doctors, overwhelming support from family and friends, and God's Good Grace. They feel blessed to have Shawn in their lives and are devoted to providing him the care he needs to last a long lifetime full of good health and happiness! As Shawn is an avid 'train' fan, they are happy to "Chug Along With Him" to his recovery, and thank everyone for sharing in his journey.

Shawn would love to hear your messages of love and support. You can leave messages through his CarePage website or send cards to:
