Meet Douglas Barlow…

He is a junior at SKHS…and took part in Little League since the age of 5.

Two months ago, he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.

His girlfriend Kaitlin decided to sell t-shirts to raise money for the Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana Farber Center where Douglas receives his treatments.

Please consider purchasing a "Doug Dynasty" t-shirt for $12 to support this awesome young man and help him support The Jimmy Fund Clinic!!

Please email me at thassell@verizon.net if you are interested in ordering.

I will take the orders and get them to Kaitlin. She will be submitting a large order and I will collect your money when I deliver your shirt. Shirts can be ordered in adult sizes XS, S, M, L and XL.

If you don’t know Douglas, he is an inspiring young man whose smile and positive attitude are amazing!

Thank you for your support!
Tonia and Lew Hassell
