The Why

Griffin Namin was a college sophomore at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC majoring in politics when we was diagnosed with a  stage-4 glioblastoma brain tumor. After surgery and the inability to use his right foot, his real battle began with radiation, chemotherapy and physical therapy. Griffin took a semester off to attend his treatments, and then returned to school in the Fall of 2018. He not only managed his studies and participation in the College Republicans club, but he also began an internship on Capitol Hill. Griffin John Namin passed away after a long, hard-fought battle with cancer on Wednesday June 26, 2019. Shortly before he passed and in typical Griffin fashion, he wrote out numerous letters to family, friends, and colleagues outlining his last words and wishes for them. Among those letters were his last wishes and one last request for all of us. Griffin wanted a fund set-up in his name so that we could carry on his legacy and give back to organizations that had given so much to him.
