Who’s In Your Family?

Sharren (Mom) Bob (Dad) Kaitlyn (11) Molly (11 our CHARGE rockstar) Rudy and Charlie – our four-legged kids

What do you want people to know about your family?

My family and I live in Newburyport, MA about an hour north of Boston, and just a few miles from the beach. I am originally from New Jersey and still have family there as well as in South Carolina. My husband is from the Boston area. Molly’s favorite activity is swimming! She stays busy with aquatic therapy, t-ball, and Special Olympics track and soccer. Molly also loves the Christmas season… especially the lights and Santa! Molly is a happy little girl and makes everyone smile with her laugh. Kaitlyn is in 5th grade and loves art, tumbling, cheer and learning to play the flute. She is the best sister to Molly.

Why do you Volunteer with the Foundation?

The journey of having a child with CHARGE can be scary at first and even isolating. I want to share my experiences with others and let them know they are not alone. I hope I can connect others to the wonderful CHARGE community and help them learn about all the CHARGE Foundation has to offer. I want to provide support, resources and, most importantly, hope to other families who are embarking on or are in the midst of this crazy journey.

What activities do you like to do?

We love spending summers with family and friends in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. We spend most weekends at our camper enjoying the pool, bands, golf cart rides and s’mores around the campfire. The girls love to swim, go to the beach and visit the amusement park. The rides are Molly’s favorite!
