CAN Spotlight: Spare for a Cure

“I don’t want my niece and her family to feel like they are alone on an island. I want to help.” — Paul Dougherty, great uncle of William, who lives with AS.

Last Sunday, the Will.i.CAN crew hosted their 3rd Annual Spare for a Cure event. After his great nephew’s diagnosis of AS in 2020, Paul Dougherty combined his love for bowling, adoration for William, and heart of gold to bring this event to life. It’s a day of bowling, bidding, and having fun which has raised $12,500 in the last 3 years and brought together classmates, neighbors, and new friends along the way.  

We are so grateful for relatives like Paul and his wife, Gail, for rising up to be there for the Edbergs and the Angelman syndrome community!
