The Nash Dash is BACK! In May 2022, the Nash family of East Longmeadow, Ma, received the devastating news that Jon, 38 years old at the time, had a tumor in his brain that was later diagnosed as glioblastoma. With his wife Beth, his three children, Jack, Emma, and Conor, and family and friends by his side, he has endured several rounds of treatment, countless trips to Boston, and learning to accept this disease as part of his new normal. Beth being his biggest cheerleader always by his side, while maintaining as much normalcy as possible for a happy home for their children.
With the one year anniversary of this life changing news approaching, we want to focus on the small victories and celebrate Jon continuing to fight this fight! Throughout this year, despite the challenges, Jon has been able to watch his children continue to grow; little Conor coming up on age 2 and loving snuggling with daddy, Jack taking off with his basketball skills, and Emma thriving in first grade always with a smile on her face and a dance move in tow. Jon has been on dates with Beth, been back to work, watched some ball games, had his toes in the sand, and shared endless laughs with the people who love him. So this year, we ask you to join us in CELEBRATING Jon and the Nash family for fighting this fight with admirable strength and positivity, as we continue to support them during this battle.
