Donna Mair was a force to be reckoned with. She was tough, fierce and incredibly human. She lost her short battle with cancer on May 15, too soon after she was diagnosed. If Donna was in the room, Cathy was not far behind. The two were blood buddies - did most things together and they were funny! I mean, they could have been a comedic team! 

 

I first met Donna through FOTOCAN when she - and Cathy - signed up for the medical team in Dominican Republic. I was not able to go with them, but my husband did and I heard about all the antics. They managed to complete projects in the DR, Nicaragua and became our country coordinators for the Bolivia home, which they truly adored.

 

Donna was a mom, a grandmother, a tia, a dear friend and a colleague. 

I know I speak for our board members when I say we will miss her terribly; the amazing crochet work she made, the smoking breaks in the middle of a meeting, the dry, deadpan face when she cracked a joke, the straight woman for Cathy's jokes. I know the children and staff at the homes she visited miss her already. She impacted the hearts of many. Thanks for the memories, Donna........​
