I graduated from Mahopac High School in 1990 with a student named Suzanne Dolson.
We weren’t close friends, but we shared a few classes together. Nice girlâ€”friendly, warm, enthusiastic, etc.
Today I was directed to this site, Suzanne’s Fund.
Turns out Suzanne, age 37, is battling Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and Large Cell Lymphomaâ€”a blood cancer that typically affects older men.

Suzanne underwent 4 months of chemotherapy treatment for the CLL and sadly it was determined that her body was not responding to treatment.
