‘A Ceili for Erin’ Fundraiser for local woman battling brain tumor Feb. 2

‘A Ceili for Erin’ Fundraiser for local woman battling brain tumor Feb. 2

"Ask an average 26 year old what challenges they’re facing, and one may get a response of trying to locate a good job, finish graduate school or defeating the daily commute. But for 26-year-old Peabody resident Erin Dawson, her main hurdle since birth has been fighting for her life.
Erin Dawson
Born with neurofibromatosis, a genetic neurological disorder that results in the growth of tumors [neurofibromas] along the body’s nerves which damage cell tissue, Dawson is no stranger to facing challenges that many could not imagine." Ever since her life began, battling neurofibromatosis has remained a constant fight.

“Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder she was diagnosed with around the age of 2,” said Julie Gentile, Erin’s aunt. “It’s always been something that we’ve had to monitor. She’s been lucky that she hasn’t had to have a lot of surgeries for it.”

"To help with her mounting medical bills, Dawson’s friends and family in the areas of Beverly and Peabody seek to come to her aid with a fundraiser named “A Ceili for Erin,” to be held on Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Vittori-Rocci Post No. 56 in Beverly, where Dawson’s grandfather, William Mahoney, is a member.

“Ceili” is a Gaelic word for a party with music and dancing. In keeping with that original spirit, “A Ceili for Erin” will feature food, live music, silent auction, raffles and a cash bar. “She loves Ireland, and her cousins came up with the idea for the event,” said Mahoney. “It will help to cover bills and costs that are not covered by insurance.”
Mahoney explained that the celebration is giving her granddaughter something to look forward to, and anticipates the night being a joyous occasion.
“It will be a fun thing. Everyone will enjoy themselves,” said Mahoney."
