Millie McGinty was diagnosed with stage IV glioblastoma in October of 2010. As she began this battle she built her team of lead oncologists, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare professionals from both Hartford Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital. With strong family support, Millie was eager to fight the battle, never giving up. She would often say with fists raised high, "we are going to beat this". Millie was called to heaven yesterday January 7th, 2011. Though little time between diagnosis and end of life, Grammie will always be remembered for her courage, strength, and hope. A kind soul and loving woman she was. Surely she will be missed. May she find peace always.
