Rose has a big heart, so it did not surprise me that she wanted to give back on her birthday. Her grandfather passed away of cancer and her cousin, Carol is a survivor.

Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event and is held throughout communities throughout the world. Relay for Life honors cancer survivors remembering those lost and raising funds to help the American Cancer Society fight cancer with research, education, advocacy and patient services. This is a volunteer-driven event that lasts eighteen hours and goes overnight ending at 8am on Sunday, April 22nd because cancer never sleeps.
Rose, like many others, has had family members as well as friends affected by cancer, including her cousin, who is a survivor. This event honors family and friends that are cancer survivors and one can register survivors on the Central Pinellas Chamber’s team. They will receive a special dinner as well as plenty of other goodies.
The O’Connells are active members in the community. They own and operate Paradise Air Inc., a full-service cooling and heating company located in Pinellas County, Florida. Along with many other local businesses, the O’Connells are members of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce. These businesses have come together as a team to help fight cancer.
This is a special event and they are thrilled that Rose chose to give back to the community for her birthday. Jill O’Connell said of her daughter, “Rose has a big heart, so it did not surprise me that she wanted to give back on her birthday. Her grandfather passed away of cancer and her cousin, Carol is a survivor. Not only will Rose celebrate her sweet sixteen, but she can help many others by contributing to the community’s efforts to help fight cancer.”
