My Story

Meet Paigé. She is the little girl that our team honors for St. Baldrick's every year. For obvious reasons we call our team Paigé's Possé.
Paigé was was born on April 4, 1988 & was only 6 years old when she was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). She fought hard, and with a wonderful spirit, however in February of 1997 Paigé relapsed, and sadly, only 6 months later on August 7, 1997 she succumbed to the disease.
 Paigé was only 9 years old when she passed away. Paigé's Possé is now in their 12th year of participation for St. Baldrick's, we look forward to the day where will no longer have to shave our heads because there will be a cure, but until then we will continue to raise money for this cause, and go bald every year.
In 12 years our team has had many members including Paigé's mom Cathy Rehfus-Wilsek, her dad Richard Wilsek, Steve Joyce, Adam Joyce, Richard Bucchi, Elliot Clancy, Kim Clancy, Michael Cimarusti, Joshua R Jarnagin, Dave Thompson, Rachel Vuchichevich, Rae Oldenburger & Richard Larabee. We thank everyone who has been a part of our team for so long!
