CATHERINE AND JIM GAINEY
Catherine Gainey was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. She met her husband, Jim, 31, at a small liberal arts college in Madison in 2002. Jim and Catherine married in September 2007, and have two young boys – Shamus, 3 (his given name is James), and Finnegan, 1. Catherine is a Child Protection Investigator for Columbia County, WI.
Jim was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer, which metastasized to his liver and lung, in March of 2013. There is a significant family history but never has anyone in his family been diagnosed with this disease at such a young age. Catherine and Jim are committed to finding a cure so other families don’t have to face this awful disease and to show their sons that a negative can be turned into a positive.
