Rachel's Story

Rachel Allison Branagan

September 27, 1995 - September 12, 2003 

Rachel Allison Branagan was a bright and articulate seven-year-old with an insatiable appetite for learning. She had just started the third grade when she lost her long battle with cancer in September of 2003.

Rachel was an avid reader and talented artist with her own unique eye on the world around her. Despite the daily burdens of her illness and treatment, her curiosity and imagination were limitless. Even when she was tired and feeling sick, she always wanted to be in school with her classmates.

The legacy of Rachel's remarkable spirit comes in the form of this foundation established in her honor. Our goal is simple: to help spark a life-long love of learning in elementary students throughout New England. We think Rachel would be proud.
