3rd Annual Survivors Ball “Celebrating Victory”

At this year’s Annual Survivors Ball, Founder/CEO Angelia Dunbar celebrated 11 honorees: Dana Branch, a survivor of COVID and Life; Lisa Green, a survivor of the Loss of a Child; Monic Lowe, a survivor of Heart Failure; Sue Loncar, a survivor of Suicide Loss; Mike Garrett, a survivor of Incarceration; Nikisha M. Jackson, a survivor of Breast Cancer; Robert Thomas, a survivor of Rare Diseases; Dewayne Bryant, also a survivor of Incarceration; and Storm Malone, Sheritha Smith and Lurlene Smith, all survivors of Domestic Violence.

A survivor of Breast Cancer, domestic abuse and a kidnapping, Ms. Dunbar said the mission of the event, which is the third annual, was to bring awareness of individuals who have experienced life changing, life altering, and traumatic experiences; and yet they still survived.

In an emotional and exciting celebration Grammy award-winning singer Le’Andria Johnson and Angela Blair and the 3 Life Band provided entertainment while FOX and ROB (Fox & Rob Rich) the subjects of the Oscar-nominated Amazon Original Documentary Time and founders of Rich Family Ministries, shared moving testimonies and messages of inspiration.

Also presenting awards to “Survivors Angels” for their support of others, Ms. Dunbar said she created Survivors Ball because “it’s my story but our journey.”
