Daffron & Associates would like to congratulate its co-owner and long-time employee, Karen Daffron, who has been recognized as Bowling Green, Missouri’s Citizen of the Year. Karen is the President of the Cancer Memorial Park Foundation Board of Directors. Almost everyone has been touched by this terrible disease, and Karen wanted a way to honor all who have fought the battle with cancer. Cancer Memorial Park has been her idea and vision from the outset and, with the enthusiastic help of the Bowling Green community and beyond, the park has become a reality. It is a true example of the community coming together to make something great happen.
About the Cancer Memorial Park Foundation
The Cancer Memorial Park Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to memorialize and honor those who have lost the fight with cancer and support those currently engaged in the fight. The park is constructed with a paver brick floor engraved with personal messages from contributors and the names of loved ones remembered or honored. Several memorial benches along with custom made caps for the walls of the cancer ribbon also contain engraved names and messages. The Foundation hopes that the park will continue to raise cancer awareness for many years to come.
