Shannon’s Path is a family-run, organization dedicated to, inspired by, and in tribute to the legacy of Shannon H. McDonald. Shannon’s own life path was defined by her personal ethos; treat people well, show respect for all, and give back to those in need. These values helped her confront an incurable and rare cancer diagnosis, a path dealt by fate, in 2015 – appendiceal mucinous adenocarcinoma. Immediately inspired to outlast a 30-month life expectancy, Shannon’s courage, resiliency, and sheer determination led to a path that more than doubled that expected dire prognosis. Along the way, she taught so many how to confront life’s biggest challenges with grace, modesty and selflessness.
Live, Laugh, Love
The mission of Shannon’s Path is to fund appendiceal cancer research and enhance the use, quality, and availability of holistic cancer care.
