2020 DDF Dream Makers Miracle Fund
Debbie's Dream Foundation is proud to have made a wish come true for a 6-year stomach cancer survivor and South Florida native Kenny Rikard. Through our new Dream Makers Miracle Fund, sponsored by biopharmaceutical partner BeiGene, DDF selected Kenny as the first recipient to have one bucket-list wish fulfilled that would create lasting memories.
Kenny was diagnosed in 2014 with stage one stomach cancer. Following several rounds of chemo and a total gastrectomy, he can now eat and do almost anything he had done before. Kenny always dreamed of going skydiving and wanted to find a way to celebrate his 61st birthday and his six years of survivorship.
Kenny is grateful to be a survivor of this terrible disease and incredibly grateful that Debbie's Dream Foundation and BeiGene could help make his skydiving wish come true on Saturday, November 21, 2020. He is particularly proud to have had this experience and to help spread awareness about this disease during Stomach Cancer Awareness Month despite everything happening in the world.
