About Our Mom

Teresa battled breast cancer on-and-off since 2002. Throughout her treatments, her focus remained on supporting others. Without knowledge of her treatments, it would be difficult to tell she was going through so much. Teresa had such a positive impact on everyone she met. During her short stay at The Bird House, Teresa received compassionate care and support similar to which she provided to others throughout her entire life. After Teresa passed away, Ryan Hanrahan, her Godson, was able to put what many others felt into words:

“She was the kindest, gentlest, sweetest person I have ever known. She radiated positivity and love everywhere she went, and talking to her was the most purifying experience. No matter how short the conversation was, I always left her presence with a smile, a hug, and at least three gentle pats on the back. That was how she gave you her light, and she was always overflowing with it.”

Our family is blessed she had such peace during her final days. In honor of Teresa and to help others in the future, we’ve created the Birdies for The Bird House memorial fundraiser.
