Adis has been a “Candlelighter mom” since 1994 when her son was diagnosed with Wilm’s Tumor at the age of two. In appreciation and gratitude for all the support she received from Candlelighters of Brevard, she became active in volunteering with fundraising events and in the resale store. In 2006, her passion and strong beliefs in the organization inspired her to become Director of Family Services. Using the positive outcome of her son’s experience, she welcomes new families with compassion, hope, and understanding of their difficult situation.
