A graduate of Danvers High herself, Talbot met her husband, Bruce, in high school and raised her family in a community she loved. It was family and mostly close high school friends who were her support system, Bazylinski said.
“A lot of the support has come directly through the community,” she said.
And although Talbot kept her battle private, the mark she left on her community is plain to see.
“For us, the amount of community support that we’ve received has been overwhelming,” said Bazylinski, who is also raising her family in Danvers. “Danvers is a wonderful town and people are very committed to one another here.”
