President and Co-Founder
Darnesha Evans is the President and Co-Founder of Project Kennedy which was established by her daughter Kennedy after being diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma Cancer. When cancer struck Darnesha's household, they were lost, however, organizations and often strangers began to pour into them with tokens of love. Gift cards to surrounding restaurants by the hospital, monetary gifts for parking, and even blankets sewn in Kennedy's favorite colors all brought a sense of comfort that they were not alone. Knowing the pain and frustrations of looking after a child, Darnesha is determined to support those who are dealing with cancer day by day but also those that have lost loved ones due to this disease. Spreading awareness, supplying families with everyday necessities, or even appearing at speaking engagements, Project Kennedy will stand against cancer for as long as it takes.
