  • Tess O'Leary ’10 - Bone Marrow Donor

    This summer, Tess O'Leary ’10 donated around 5 million stem cells to her Dad to help fight his MDS diagnosis. Now, Tess is raising awareness about bone marrow transplants and how you can help be the match. 

    "Earlier this year my Dad was diagnosed with MDS, an aggressive pre-leukemia which has been attacking his bone marrow. The only known cure for MDS is a complete bone marrow transplant using stem cells from either an unrelated donor, a sibling, or a biological child. After several months of blood tests, doctor appointments, and multiple daily injections, I was able to donate 5 million stem cells to him today (8/31). In the coming weeks, his bone marrow will be completely wiped from his system and replaced with my stem cells which will promote new and healthy bone marrow growth. It’s been an emotional and physically painful time, but it feels incredibly rewarding to be able to help him in an otherwise completely helpless situation!

    Throughout this process, I’ve realized how desperate the need for bone marrow donors is (especially since the onset of COVID-19). If you can, please sign up to be a donor (link below). You might never get the call, but if you do, you literally have an opportunity to save someone’s life. Trust me, it’s worth it."

    Congratulations to Tim Mathews ’87 who was awarded the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) Outstanding Eagle Scout Award Award. The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) is a prestigious recognition granted by the local council NESA committee to Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level.  

    Tim has shown exceptional achievement in his career that makes his community very proud. He continues the Eagle Scout values as a professional, mentor, volunteer, parishioner, and above all, a loving husband and father. His exceptional long-term commitment to the Boy Scouts of America and Eagle Scout traditions exhibits a sterling example for others to follow. He has displayed high qualities of competence and initiative in many fields of work and his arduous efforts to help others excel are evident from various recognition. Beginning with his father, a Troop Committee Chair, his family lives the scouting ways; with two Eagle Scout brothers and now his own two sons in scouting. His son, Joseph, Class of 2021 just earned his Eagle Scout Rank. Tim is that sterling example of what a Scouter / Eagle Scout must carry.
