This event is very special to me. Breezes is where I work, and where I met David for the first time. In 2015, I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, while I was pregnant. My family and I were struggling emotionally and financially from the diagnosis. My friends and family held a benefit for me at Breezes. David attended that day and offered the foundation’s assistance to us. We had never met before, but he heard my story and wanted to help. It was at this moment that I knew, when I was able, I wanted to help others who were going through what I was. David was such an inspiration to me.
I am honored to work with DDBCF now and help put together an event that can raise money to bring support and hope to families battling cancer.
