As a former news reporter, Nancy came across hundreds of stories of tragedy and wanted to be able to do something to alleviate their suffering. Since its inception, The Butterfly Foundation has helped cancer survivors, widows, children and families who have been brought down by tragedy to rebuild their lives through acts of generosity and caring!

Sadly, tragedy struck Nancy’s family in 2014. Nancy lost her husband Patrick in an horrific bicycling accident caused by a distracted driver. The accident occurred on August 21, 2014 and Patrick peacefully passed away on August 26, 2014 surrounded by friends and family. Since his untimely death, Nancy has reached out to those in need through The Butterfly Foundation. Her goal is to help others survive life’s hardships with the help and compassion of their local community. In addition, our platform at The Butterfly Foundation is dedicated to preventing distracted driving by campaigning for “Safe Driving”.
