A Letter from the Editor
Dear Readers, the
I am not sure where to start with the developments since our last visit. Looking back I get dizzy
and tired but all in a good way. On March 13th, across Long Island, massive groups of volun- North ShoreiaN
teers came together in unity and support of children suffering from childhood cancer. Between
the Northport and Rocky Point events alone, more than 850 people stepped up; men, women,
and lots of children, to allow their heads to be shaved as an outward sign of solidarity with
Charles McKenna
children suffering from Childhood Cancer. St. Baldrick’s Foundation teaches and encourages
Publisher and Editor-in-Chief
the volunteers to go out and secure sponsors who make donations in honor of the shavee. More
than a half million dollars was raised from these events that March day! Every penny goes
Thomas Reid
towards Childhood Cancer Research. As a family, this is our 9th year with the organization and
Publisher and Art Director
we became involved because my younger brother, John, of Northport, felt it was a fitting me-
morial to our late brother, Fr. Peter McKenna, who died of brain cancer in 1987, at the young
age of 27 and only 6 days after his ordination as a Roman Catholic Priest. We started with this
Gala Scibelli
because of my brother; we continue it for all of the children, yours, mine and all of them. For
