Shrewsbury couple donate son's motorcycle to raise funds for cancer organization

Shrewsbury – After Shrewsbury resident Scott Zenaro died at the much too young age of 36, no one would have blamed his parents, Ron and Carol, if they decided to hold onto their son's beloved custom-built motorcycle for sentimental reasons. Instead, the couple have decided to let go of the bike via a special raffle which will benefit an organization very dear to their hearts – the Lazarex Cancer Foundation – which they credit with helping to prolong their son's life after he was diagnosed with end stage Ewing's sarcoma. Although he was disabled, Scott lived a very full life, Ron said, working alongside him at his two stores, RAYCO Car Electronics in Shrewsbury and Auburn. Scott loved cars, motorcycles, snowmobiling, water skiing, playing golf, and playing the drums.

Southborough second-grader organizes fundraiser for epilepsy awareness

Southborough - According to the Epilepsy Foundation, absence seizures are caused by abnormal activity in a person’s brain and are characterized by a short period of “blanking out” or staring into space. This type of seizure is most common in children ages 4 to 14. When Andrew and Melanie Harmon noticed their 6-year-old daughter Emily “spacing out” for a few seconds several times a day, they assumed that she was just thinking about something because she would return to the conversation or activity as if nothing happened. In August 2013, an EEG confirmed that Emily was experiencing absence seizures.
