From Our Editors

Mary Jacqueline O'Keefe was diagnosed with cancer in July 2008, tragically passing away a year later at the age of 3. Mary spent much of her final year in the hospital fighting. Her longest stay was nine weeks—a long time for anyone, certainly, but especially for a young child. Despite the circumstances, though, Mary developed a knack for arts and crafts. She loved playing games and creating things, spending her remaining time just being a kid.

After Mary's passing, her parents, Peter and Christine, founded the Mary Moon Foundation in her memory. Fueled by Mary's love for arts and crafts, the foundation is on a continuos mission to keep the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital stocked with art supplies, toys, and games. It accomplishes that through special events and fundraisers, including the annual Make a Splash event every spring. There, the entire community rallies behind Mary Moon's cause in an effort to ensure all the hospital's children can continue being children, no matter their diagnosis or how long their stay.
