When Dan Ferriouolo, a WRRE agent in Milford, hit his fundraising goal of $2,000 for the annual Raveis Ride + Walk, his mother, Vicki, cried because she knew the donations to the Damon Runyon Cancer Foundation were made in her honor. In 2014, Vicki was diagnosed with breast cancer, after already enduring cervical cancer and melanoma. The following months proved to be a heart-wrenching roller coaster for the family, but throughout the tears, the more prevalent emotion was anger — an emotion they had never felt before.
When you are juggling three sons three and under and you lead an active, healthy and fit life, the last words you expect to hear are “You have cancer.” But that’s the phone call Jennifer Cavanaugh, 35, received in June 2018 while traveling with her family — and her whole world shifted. Three months ago, as she was putting her eight-month-old baby in his crib for a nap, she found a lump. Two doctors told her it was likely a cyst, but she pushed for further testing. Ultimately, a biopsy showed she had an aggressive form of breast cancer, called HER2/hormone negative, a protein in her cells that allows the cancer to live and spread.

I salute People Magazine’s announcement in April that they have rebranded their popular annual issue celebrating Hollywood’s beautiful people. Since 1990, the annual event has evolved from a list of the “50 Most Beautiful” to “Most Beautiful Woman” and now “The Beautiful Issue.” The editor-in-chief, Jess Cagle, noted that the change of the title is meant to “make clear that the issue is not a beauty contest … it will celebrate the most beautiful qualities of all: strength, humanity and artistry.” He added that the issue celebrates all kinds of beauty: “beautiful souls as well as beautiful skin.” [If you missed who they chose for this year’s cover, it’s the musical artist Pink.]
