My Story

Shane Andrew Callaghan, age 15, of Plainfield, passed away peacefully, at home, on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, surrounded by the love of his family. Shane bravely fought osteosarcoma for the past four years. Born September 15, 2004 in Aurora, he was a graduate of Aux Sable Middle School. Shane was a smart, compassionate and funny young man who liked playing baseball and basketball, riding his bike, and spending time with his family and friends. He also loved fishing, football, and gaming, especially PlayStation. Despite his own challenges in dealing with pediatric cancer, he cared deeply about others affected by the disease and worked hard to make their lives better. He remained active until the end raising funds for research and increasing awareness about childhood cancer. He was especially proud to know that a new organization, Shane’s Anglers, was being developed to introduce cancer patients to the joy of fishing.
