This is an email that I received form Dr. Lewis Sliverman who was Turlough's primary doctor,and Dr David Gordon was also one of our Primary Doctors. Dr. Gordon and his family attend the MM5K every year.

I wanted to share this letter as it shows how much of a difference we are all making and how much it is appreciated. Click here to read the letter.

Turlough Baby

Thank you for visiting the Turlough (Tur-lock) Eoghain (Owen) Meehan website.

It is dedicated to our son, Turlough, born on June 23, 2007.

At the age of 5-1/2 weeks our Turlough was diagnosed with infant ALL – infant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Infant ALL is a relatively uncommon type of leukemia that occurs in children less than 12 months of age. After a courageous fight at Children’s Hospital Boston, Turlough passed away on December 18 2007 at six months old.
Dealing with a serious illness and the loss of a child changes your life and the lives of people around you. It is our hope that in the future no other infant or family will have to suffer through this disease. The exact cause of most childhood cancers remains a mystery. It is only through research that we can hope to improve the chances that infants diagnosed with this disease will be cured. It is because of the research done thus far that we enjoyed the six months we had with our son. That is why we are asking those who visit this site to pause for a moment and make a donation in Turlough’s memory to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Donations made on this website go directly to the “Turlough Meehan Research Foundation” at Dana-Farber. We hope you will visit this website often to check for updates on research and to keep track of our upcoming fund raising events.

Turlough touched many lives in the short time he was with us. As you explore his website, please take a moment to read the stories and look at the pictures. We trust you will be touched as well and help in our quest to find a cure for this fatal disease.

Thank you for your generous support.

Phelim and Amanda-Clare
