Suzanne Donahue Keeper of the Hope Award

Keeper of the Hope Banner

Suzanne Donahue, was only 40 years old when she lost her battle with melanoma on May 21, 2012.  She journeyed long and hard but did so with grace, love of life and hope.   Hope is inspiring.  It can define the quality of life during very difficult times not only for those struggling but for those around them providing love and support.  We come across people who are an inspiration  because of the way they face insurmountable challenges while continuing to live life at its fullest.

We will keep Suzanne’s memory alive with an annual Suzanne Donahue Keeper of the Hope Award, given to individuals who are inspirational, who teach us about the importance of giving back, and who define hope for us in the darkest days.

This year we are thrilled to announce Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley and the team at The InnoLoft at Constant Contact will be our Suzanne Donahue Keepers of the Hope Award Honorees.

The first Suzanne Donahue Keeper of the Hope Award was presented at our 2012 Shades of Hope gala to Suzanne’s parents Kathy and David Donahue in memory of their daughter, whose journey with melanoma was always fought with a love of life.  Corporate recipients of the Suzanne Donahue Keeper of the Hope award were Financial Engines and Knight Capital Americas. The past honorees include our 2013 Boston Marathon Running for Cover team and Tom Reilly. Inspiring Companies are run by inspiring people and have a workforce of inspiring people. Both companies demonstrate the importance of giving back and a commitment to supporting their employees during the darkest of days.

This beautiful video was created in honor of Suzanne and shares insight from her family, friends, doctor and co-worker as to the tremendous person Suzanne was.
