The Belinda Prewitt Memorial Fund was established to create, promote and conduct special events supporting programs dealing with various stages of breast cancer in an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms, treatment and support.
Belinda Prewitt, or as she was affectionately known to many; "Buffy" was from Tipp City, Ohio and died June 11, 2012 at Hospice of Dayton after a long battle against breast cancer. She was born on Little Rock Air Force Base April 19, 1967 to John and Diane Prewitt. She graduated from Tippecanoe High School in 1985 and became Interactive Account Director for Berry Network where she was employed for over 20 years.
Belinda was a breast cancer survivor who was selfless in her crusade to promote breast cancer awareness putting all others ahead of herself. She was a beautiful, strong and independent woman with a generous heart. She had a smile that was contagious with an onery laugh that brought happiness to all. She had a deep passion for animals, the beach, flowers and most importantly fun. Even in the darkest times, nothing could ever dampen her spirit.
Belinda is survived by her parents John and Diane Prewitt, her fiance' Matt Black, her sister and brother in law Stacey and Doug Griffin, her niece Macey and nephew Matt Griffin, her stepcritters, Katie, Mike, and Mitch Black, and her four legged life companions Roscoe and Ellie Mae, all of Tipp City Ohio.
We now walk every year in her honor at the American Cancer Society "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" event as a team called Belinda's Brigade at Fifth Third Field in Dayton, Ohio.
