Student Activities and Involvement director to speak about breast cancer awareness

Damon Brown

Damon Brown, director of Student Activities and Involvement, will give a keynote speech for Breast Cancer Awareness Month at the end of October. 

This Central Michigan University Program Board event, “Peace Beyond Understanding: A Family’s Journey Through Cancer” is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 in Anspach Hall room 162.

Brown will discuss losing his wife, Keisha Brown, to breast cancer, and how her diagnosis in 2007 impacted his family.

He will also discuss the Keisha Y. Brown Angel Wings Fund, an organization founded by Keisha. The organization provides financial assistance to children who have lost a parent to cancer, offering scholarships to college students and decreasing the financial burden placed on surviving parents. 

The Keisha Y. Brown Angel Wings Fund also focuses on raising awareness about cancer and positively impacting individuals and families who have been affected by cancer.
