When Jim McCaffrey lost his 6-year-old daughter Mia to a rare form of pediatric cancer in 2017, the pain of that loss was acute, and not just for the family.
“I think people struggle to connect with us sometimes about Mia,” said McCaffrey, 41, a Trumbull High School English teacher.
When McCaffrey decided to get involved with the charity Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer — a New Jersey-based charity that raises money for research into pediatric cancers — in 2018, he said, it gave people a way to reach out to the family.
“It’s helped us continue Mia’s story — not just for us, but for other people,” McCaffrey said.
