Identical Twins Run Together To Remember
November 23, 1973 – March 17, 2003
Aileen O’Connor Hill
January 7, 1938 – July 16, 2012
Leah's brother-in-law, Michael Connor, was diagnosed with leukemia as a child. Michael fought cancer with his inspiring Irish spirit, so it was bittersweet when he died on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2003.
The twins’ Irish grandmother, Aileen O'Connor Hill, was diagnosed with cancer on Friday, July 13 and died on Monday, July 16, 2012. Her sudden and unexpected death has affected the twins profoundly. Their grief is intense, but the twins find solace in running in her memory.
