Marlborough Eagle Riders to sponsor fundraiser in memory of Berlin girl

Marlborough - On July 17, 2003, Rich and Sharon McGowan celebrated the birth of their first child, daughter Olivia. It was on this day, too, that they began the battle of their lives.

There, she was diagnosed with a condition called Fryns Syndrome, a multiple congenital anomaly syndrome usually resulting in neonatal death.
