Saturday evening at the New England Patriots game. From left to right, Jonathan Fador of the New England Patriots, Scott Finch, Beth Finch, Dianne Jewett, Vince Burks of Amica Insurance, Danny Jewett, and Pat Patriot.
Beth and Scott Finch, their son Danny Jewett, and Beth's mother Dianne Jewett arrived to the game in head-to-toe Patriots gear. The family could not have been more grateful for the opportunity to have such a great evening, considering over the past three years the family has dealt with a number of setbacks.
Scott was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2004 when his twins were not even a year old. The cancer went into remission for three months only to return as lung cancer. He has been in remission since February of 2005. This was followed by Beth experiencing a bad back injury, paralyzing her from the waist down. She is partially paralyzed today.
"This family has been through an extremely tough couple of years and deserves to have a great night of watching their favorite team," said Vince Burks, Senior Assistant Vice President at Amica Insurance. "Their smiles made us delighted that the YMCA had chosen this family to enjoy the game."
