Women in Business was paired with the Newcomb family right before THON 2017. MaryAnn, our THON child, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at 18 years-old. MaryAnn’s battle with ALL has not been an easy one, but she said it’s been made much doable with the support of WIB and the Four Diamonds Fund. When she’s feeling up to it, Maryann continues to follow her passions of sailing, golfing, hanging out with her friends, and horseback riding. She even competes in jumping with her two horses! In her free time, Maryann loves to travel! Before she was diagnosed, she was planning to be an exchange student in Costa Rica for a year. Along with her family, which includes her parents, Celeste and Brian, and her two siblings, William (15 years old) and Alexandra (10 years old), WIB will be there to support Maryann throughout her journey ahead. She inspires us each day with her impeccable strength and determination!
