In August 2015, Dawn Hill was living her life, a life she loved so dearly...one she always spoke of as perfect. She had just run a 10K trail run, hiked the Sugarloaf Mountains, kayaked the Gunpowder River and taken a cruise to Bermuda & Bahamas to enjoy the blue waters. On that cruise, she began to have excruciating stomach pains and upon returning home, was quickly diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer (that had metastasized to her liver and stomach). Dawn underwent over a year of intense clinical trial treatments at Hopkins but sadly, she passed away on 12/20/2016, after her warrior-heart fought the 16-month battle. Dawn brought HOPE and INSPIRATION to many of her friends & family and even strangers who followed her story on Facebook through shared posts.

Dawn Hill Fight Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses on the financial needs of Pancreatic Cancer patients. The Foundation was created in honor of Dawn Hill, a true WARRIOR!
