Annie Barry became a LCF Affiliate and Lung Cancer fighter through the influence of her father, Dennis Barry of Olney, Maryland. Dennis fought a six-year battle and came out a champion each year. Annie believes that even during his final year, he did not lose. “He lived out a life full of love, inspiration and courage, leaving a legacy that I want to carry on. His strong will and determination continued to shine through to his very last day. He fought hard and now it is my job to keep his legacy alive.”
Annie was the recipient of the LCF Caregiver Award in 2011 and continues to have Fighting Barry 5Ks, birthday bashes and other fundraising and awareness efforts.
“But I’ll always be with you even when you stray, bound together soul to soul and you can’t take that away.”
Love you Daddy. RIP. –Annie Barry
