My parents, Pat and Eileen Fogarty, moved to La Plata in 2007 to be near me and their two grandchildren. My mother had a series of health problems and it made sense for them to be close by. Moving to a new place late in life can be difficult, but many in the community made it easy. My mother quickly connected with the Sisters at Heart breast cancer support group and my father connected with so many people thanks to his outgoing personality.
Both of my parents were children of Irish immigrants, and were both born and raised in New York City. My mother was a nurse and my father had several incarnations of a career including running his own delivery service between JFK airport and Manhattan. Unfortunately, the fax machine put him out of business. They both worked hard and saved a lot of money for travel. They traveled the world, taking many cruises and trips to Europe, the Soviet Union, the South Pacific, and throughout the United States.
They retired to Charlottesville, Va., in 1995, where they enjoyed 12 wonderful years. They made friends, threw parties and volunteered in various ways. My mother was very active with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, having been diagnosed with cancer five times beginning with Hodgkin’s lymphoma when she was 23 years old. My father enjoyed hanging out on Charlottesville’s downtown pedestrian mall, meeting new people and engaging in conversation.
My mother passed away late in 2012 and is remembered by those who knew her for her courageous strength in the face of far too much health-related adversity. My father passed away in 2015 and is remembered for his intellect, quick wit and love of life. As their only child, I wanted to find a way to keep their memories alive and what better way than to create a legacy fund that will benefit the community that warmly welcomed them.

The Steel Lillies Fund created by the Bayer family of La Plata, MD, “to support and bring awareness to ‘non-breast’ cancers.” The family understands the importance of breast cancer awareness, and has participated in fundraisers for that effort. “However we desperately want to increase awareness around all cancers, as they are all devastating, and those suffering from all of the various cancers need the same kind of support and attention given to those with breast cancer,” stated Ms. Bayer. The Steel Lillies Fund was created in honor of their sister, Tiffany, who has been battling Sarcoma since being diagnosed in February 2011. The name comes from the steel rods put in Tiffany’s back to support her spine after the removal of several large tumors and ‘Lillies’ comes from Tiffany’s last name ‘Lill’. Their goal is to raise funds and awareness, but also to empower those who are battling this disease. The Steel Lillies Fund was created as a Seedling Fund, where the Fund can take in contributions but is not allowed to distribute grants until it reaches the minimum allowed. They are planning 2 annual fundraisers, one locally and one in Rochester, NY where Tiffany resides, including a 5k this summer.
To mail a check to the Steel Lillies Fund, please make payable to: Community Foundation of Southern Maryland and in the memo add: Steel Lillies Fund. Mailing Address: Community Foundation of Southern Maryland, P.O. Box 716, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622 .
