Heaven's Door Cancer Foundation      

      Beautful Women Living Beautiful Lives Within Their Diagnosis

Daphne Evans, CEO & Founder 
Daphne D. Evans is Founder and CEO of Heaven's Door Cancer Foundation, starting in 2005 after coming home from a double mastectomy. Daphne had been a Manager and Controller Consultant to law firms and eCommerce corporations for nearly 20 years. She is multi-cancer survivor of ovarian, breast and spinal cancer and has been in remission since 2010. She is also a fundraiser, public speaker and philanthropist. Nominated for Woman of the Year by Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Member of Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, The Canary Foundation, Italian Make A Wish Foundation and Society for Oncology Massage. Board of Directors Member of Springfield Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Founder of Evans Relief Foundation. Ms. Evans is also an ordained minister.

Daphne’s parents, Reverend Donald and Mrs. Ida Evans have been her inspiration. Her parents taught her that to help others was a ministry that was not passé. With this shining example and encouragement, Daphne began to volunteer at an early age to care for cancer patients, sometimes staying for weekends to relieve the overtaxed caregivers. She visited Nicaragua after the Sandinista regime and had trucks bring clothing over the bombed out roads for the villagers while she flew in by a Russian parachute plane. She hosted clothing drives in San Francisco during the tsunami and found pilots of private planes to fly the supplies to the victims there. She also found jobs for young professionals stranded by Katrina and paid out of pocket to fly them to their new job locations. She became a member of the Italian Make A Wish Foundation and would visit Genoa and speak directly to the children, encouraging hotels to offer free accommodation for the children and their parents. In 2008, she was nominated as San Francisco's Woman of the year by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; devoting 3 months in marathon fundraising. She could never have had the courage or the tenacity to do any of this without her parents showing her that “it is more blessed to give than to receive."
