ABOUT DOTTIE PERSON
"Grace is actually always there, it just matters if we choose to see it." - Dottie Person.
Dottie Person was a mother of five living on the SUNY Maritime College campus in Throgs Neck, New York. In February, 2006, she was diagnosed with melanoma during her eighth month of pregnancy. Jack was born safe and sound and is the youngest of Dottie's five beautiful children who also include Elise, Caroline, Mary Katherine and Drew.
Dottie died on April 2, 2007 at age 32. She died as an inspiration of faith, hope, and love. More importantly, she taught us how to live. Dottie walked the simple way of gratitude and encouraged us to "focus on present joy, not unknowns or what-ifs." Dottie's remarkable story of motherhood and love through overwhelming adversity has become a voice of hope that is touching more lives than she could have ever dreamed.
