Dolly’s Story

dolly_bioI grew up in a large loving family and saw how important it is to work together. My background includes office manager, medical secretary and business owner, but nothing was more important to me than being a mom. My boys are my world. I was a stay-at-home mom, which allowed me to be involved in my children’s life. During this time I became a professional volunteer, helping anyone in need. While in middle school, Jason joked that I should get a T-shirt that said, “Just Say No.”
Jason & Jeff understood the importance of helping others through their philanthropic work. It was not surprising when they decided to become physicians.

As a parent you never expect to lose a child. Our family wanted to take this tragedy and turn our tears to joy by fulfilling Jason’s dream. I am learning along this path called life to step outside of my comfort zone to touch the hearts of these new medical students by providing them with their stethoscope. I hope that by sharing our story they feel inspired to also step outside of their comfort zone and make a difference today, for what if tomorrow never comes.

Although Jason’s life was cut short, he continues to make a difference through our gifts. We know with certainty that Jason’s love and spirit will live on through the lives of all the medical students who receive our stethoscopes. Together we continue to fulfill Jason’s dream with each and every donation that comes to the Jason Madachy Foundation.
