WHS hosts benefit for Ms. Toohey

WAKEFIELD - Kate Toohey, a math teacher at Wakefield High School, was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) this past year. “Kate is an absolutely amazing individual, teaching math at Wakefield High School because it is what she loves to do. Kate maintains a positive spirit and upbeat personality throughout each day. She has been an unbelievable role model and mentor to her students. Kate is the mother of two sons and has just recently become the proud grandmother of a beautiful baby boy. Kate is living her life to the fullest, enjoying every moment with her family and loved ones,” said a colleague.
In honor of Toohey, the Wakefield High School community is hosting a benefit on Thursday, April 3 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Wakefield High School cafeteria.
Good to see the community pitching in to help Ms. Toohey out. Please go to this if you can! Those medical bills don't pay themselves.


Update (3/9/2009): Kate Toohey has passed away. The Étudiant sends their prayers and thoughts to the Toohey family.
