Dawn's Story


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 ran 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 a 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 was a true warrior and both friends and family have established the Dawn Hill Fight Foundation, Inc., in her honor, to raise funds for families in need that are battling Pancreatic Cancer!

Dawn Hill Fight Foundation, Inc. is an approved 501(c) (3) Tax Exempt Organization
