DONNA IS IMPACTING LIVES THROUGH HER GENEROSITY AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
The unimaginable struck Donna’s family in 2003; Donna tragically lost her precious four-year-old son Adam to AML Leukemia within a matter of days. Adam fell gravely ill, was diagnosed and placed on life support, and four days later Donna and her husband had to make the gut-wrenching decision to remove life support after confirming there was no brain activity.
We have no words.
Through this darkness emerges a beacon of hope and light with the founding of Adam’s Angels Ministry, providing care and comfort for families suffering from childhood cancer. The ministry assists cancer families with living expenses, meals, transportation costs, and hosts a huge Christmas party at MD Anderson Children’s Hospital where every child and sibling receives a gift. Donna’s sister and nominator shares, “Adam lived a short life but impacted so many lives. Now Donna is impacting lives through her generosity and making a difference.”
Donna’s giving heart never stops. As we surprised her at our flagship store in Austin, Donna shared a recent story about driving and staying with a young girl during her chemotherapy sessions when her parents were not able, and how she witnessed her post-chemo exhausted body, crumpled in the car, with her head between her knees, because this was her “only comfortable position”.
Despite the tragedy Donna and her family endured, she has chosen to walk with joy and sprinkles sunshine on those who need it most.
