By Lucy Doherty —

Wow. I have never been so proud to be in this town as I was on May 5th 2012.We had a 5k for our dear friend, teacher, mother — Emily Brnger— who is facing one of life’s biggest challenges — Breast Cancer.

We had more than 175 people attend this event. My heart truly has been warmed by the generosity, kindness, and love by our neighbors here in Dublin and surrounding towns. When life presents us with these kind of challenges this kind of support is invaluable. You can see it, feel it and hope that it brings warmth and healing. I thank you for coming, helping and supporting this amazing woman Emily Brnger.

Lucy Doherty is a friend of Emily’s and member of the PTO at the Dublin Consolidated School.
