Erin Marie Roderick (2004-2009)
Erin Marie Roderick was born on June 23, 2004 in Concord, MA. She was diagnosed with an Ependymoma brain tumor when she was just 10 months old. Over her much too short 4 years of life, Erin underwent 3 brain surgeries to remove the tumor and completed 39 radiation treatments and multiple chemotherapies. Erin passed away on March 28, 2009, leaving her parents and big brother broken-hearted. She now has a younger brother who will never know her.
Erin was a beautiful, happy, funny and spunky little girl. She loved her Purple Hippo, the color pink, and pizza. She wanted to be a Princess Ballerina when she grew up. She attended preschool and dance classes in her hometown of Hudson, MA and made friends everywhere she went. She loved and was loved.
The loss of Erin has left an enormous hole in our lives that can never be filled. She is greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
