2222 Members Step Up Again for a Brother in Need – Thank You!

James Sullivan, son of IBEW 2222 member Dennis Sullivan, was diagnosed with Stage IV Rhabdomyosarcoma in October 2021 at age 19.
 
Symptoms began the fall of his Freshman year at Loyola Chicago. He needed to return to Boston. Since then, he has undergone extensive chemotherapy/radiation weekly at Boston Children’s Hospital-Jimmy fund clinic. Chemotherapy will continue for the following months ahead and possible clinical trials.
 

The Sullivan Family would like to thank you all for your generous donations!!!
