Memorial donations may be made to Flight from Cancer. FFC is a nonprofit organization that McKinley created to fight back against this horrible cancer disease. McKinley will send all donations to Memorial Sloan Kettering’s cancer research, specifically Dr. Jesse Joshua Smith’s ground breaking cancer research. Dr. Smith & his team, undoubtedly, gave us an additional year with Todd through his brilliant research, compassionate heart, and skillful surgical hand. He will forever be considered a friend of ours. Donations can be made through Venmo at Flight from Cancer @ ffc_stephaniesheets. All donations will be sent directly to Dr. Smith’s cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Together, we can and will find a cure for cancer.
Todd loved life and squeezed every drop out of his short life. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, boating, and (of course) his UNC Charlotte 49ers football. His biggest regret was not getting to see his daughters grow up.
