Topic: Never Give Up on Your Dream & How One Persons Struggle Can Help Others 

Lorraine Tallman has taken her personal loss and tragedy and transformed it into a source of hope for others. Lorraine’s daughter Amanda fought cancer for over 3 years beginning with leukemia and then a brain tumor. Throughout their journey, Amanda dreamed of starting a fun clothing line for kids that allowed them to remain comfortable during their chemo treatments. While Amanda’s life ended too soon, her dream lives on through the Comfycozy’s for Chemo apparel she created.
