Categories: Mud Volleyball Recipients, Present Recipients

Beth O’Brien is a 38-year-old wife and mother. She and her husband Chad live in Bennington, Nebraska, with their three crazy kids: Cael (9), Finn (6) and Annabelle (2). They also have two furry friends – a catahoula leopard dog named Rocky and a miniature pinscher named Henny. As a family they like to camp, fish, hike, garden and enjoy being outdoors. Beth was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer in February 2017 – finding the lump on her own while breastfeeding her then 9-month-old daughter. She was in treatment for nearly a year and went through 20 rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and 28 doses of radiation treatment. Relying on family and friends throughout this experience reminded her how many people love and care about her family.
