RAISING AWARENESS & GENERATING FUNDS FOR TNBC RESEARCH
Daphne's Legacy, Inc. is a nonprofit organization founded in March 2014 in memory of Daphne LaRae Scruggs Fields. Daphne was diagnosed in October 2011 at the age of 32 with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) and succumbed to the disease 2 years later in October 2013. Her family formed this organization to raise awareness of this disease and to generate funds that go directly to the research of TNBC.
Daphne was many things: a wife, a mother of two young sons (George and John Robert a.k.a. Boo), daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend, and musician. She touched many lives through her love for God, her beatuiful smile, her love and kindness to others, her many musical talents and her courageous battle against this disease.
Her family and friends want to ensure her memory lives on and that effective treatments and ultimately a cure is found for TNBC. One of the ways Daphne's Legacy, Inc. accomplishes this is through an annual fundraiser held during Daphne's birthday month (April) that is largely influenced by music, one of her many passions. More recently, an annual 5K fun run/walk has also been held annually in April. The proceeds from these events are then donated to organizations that fund the research of TNBC. We always specify that the funds we send to these organizations be designated for research.
Our hope is that one day there will be a cure for this horrible disease. Until then, GET Busy Living!
