CaringOn’s The Butterfly Luncheon

CaringOn hosted a Butterfly Luncheon on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at Liquid Libs in Baltimore to honor the late Judy Davanzo and her legacy charity. CaringOn’s mission, to thank caregivers of advanced cancer patients by gifting them with a day to “recharge, refresh, and renew,” has touched many lives. Family, friends, volunteers, and donors toasted Judy and CaringOn and celebrated caregivers everywhere for their tireless and selfless care of advanced cancer patients.

In a tribute to the great work of CaringOn, Co-Founder Lee Kappelman introduced a family who received a CaringOn gift. Advanced cancer patient Linda Adamson and University of MD breast cancer support circle leader LeVesta Jackson-Crute nominated Linda’s daughter India Johnson to receive a CaringOn gift. India has been taking care of her mother Linda for several years while holding down a big job and raising her daughter Treasure. Linda and the CaringOn team surprised India at work and presented her with a gift of a relaxing night at a luxury hotel in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Linda and India spoke movingly and with great warmth about what this gift meant to them and their journey as a cancer survivor and co-survivor. Thanks to everyone who attended for a great and inspiring day.
