Our NBC5 Responds leader Deanna Dewberry was honored at a luncheon today for her work in cancer patient advocacy. Cancer Support Community of North Texas gave her the Thrive Award and named a scholarship in her honor.
"The ability to bring free cancer support to all those impacted by cancer has really been affected by her contributions to this community and the way that she leads her life, so she's wonderful." said Cancer Support Community CEO Mirchelle Louis.
The scholarship named in Dewberry’s honor will help CSC North Texas to provide free services to cancer patients, their families, and friends.

"When we are facing the toughest of times, when we are facing cancer, we have a friend in the fight," said Dewberry when accepting the award. "That's what Cancer Support Community is. It is that friend in the fight, that angel in the foxhole,that ram in the bush, that source of solace when you believed there was none. That’s why I love this organization."
