Meet This Year’s Keynote Speaker…
Carla Hill is an advocate for the arts and health. She takes any opportunity to share her own health journey that includes the importance of early cancer detection and organ donation awareness. After receiving a kidney transplant in 2000 and experiencing two triple-negative breast cancers (2005 and 2007), Carla and her husband, Marlon Hill started the Carla Hill & Hazel Bethel Breast Cancer and Organ Donation Awareness Fund (also known as the Hill & Bethel Fund) held at the Miami Foundation. This special fund also celebrates her mother’s triumphant survival of breast cancer and collects funds for research and awareness of cancer and organ donation.
For nearly 15 years, Carla and her family are team leaders for the always fun DLIMERS! Their team of over 200 people at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has earned awards for being among the largest teams and the most spirited. Together the team has helped to build awareness and support for breast cancer survivors of African-American and Caribbean descent.
