Rachel Dacanay-Smith

Board Member

Rachel’s daughter Lucia was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia when she was only 4 years-old on January 1, 2018. The Smith family received a lot of support from DC Candlighters during and after Lucia’s cancer treatment. Rachel joined the board because she is very grateful for the organization and would like to give back to the Childhood cancer community. Lucia is doing well and the family continuously supports fundraisers that can help find a cure for cancer.
