In 2013, Darren was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM), an aggressive form of brain cancer. Rather than giving in to the disease, Darren sought to help others by forming The Darren Daulton Foundation with his wife, Amanda. The Darren Daulton Foundation was born out of Darren’s love and inspiration for serving and helping others. The Foundation serves as an extension of Darren’s passion for people how he lives every day.
We have all been impacted by Darren in one way or another. Whether you were a baseball player, a close friend, or a devoted fan, Darren treated you like family. Even with all the fanfare and publicity that surrounded Darren, at the core, he was humble and put others before himself. He used his notoriety to bring awareness and funding to this disease.
After a courageous battle, Darren passed away from his cancer on August 6, 2017. Although Darren is no longer with us, his spirit lives on through the Foundation, which is committed to providing financial assistance to those who suffer from malignant primary brain tumors. The Board of Directors, together with Amanda Daulton, vow to continue supporting those who are affected by this devastating disease and raising awareness for brain cancer.
Since its inception, the Darren Daulton Foundation has granted over $250,000.00 to more than 100 people.
