Beth Davis

Beth Davis

The Beth Davis Fund for Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients has been set up at the Norma Pfriem Breast Cancer Center in Fairfield, CT where she received treatment. There, too, she served as the Chairman of the President’s Council, lending her quietly strong wisdom and endless amounts of her then-precious time to the Center and its clients. She created and ran the Beth Davis Rose of Hope Tennis Tournament for ten years. It continues thriving today, and the thirteenth annual Tournament has brought the total funding raised to over $130,000 dollars. This money and much more is spent at the Center on its many patients who are underinsured and uninsured. To date, though, there had been no distinction or emphasis placed on raising awareness of, and spending money specifically in support of, Stage IV, metastatic breast cancer. This fund will be earmarked for patients with metastatic breast cancer in financial need receiving treatment at this center. Sadly, Beth lost her very long, very courageous battle with breast cancer on May 31, 2014. If you wish to donate directly to this fund, you may do so here.
