Dragon Master Foundation will also host a free “Drawing with Dragons” workshop on Saturday, Sept, 14 at 10 a.m. Artists of all ages will learn to draw dragons while enjoying milk and cookies provided by Sweet ‘n Saucy and The Arcade.
Haddock founded Dragon Master Foundation after her son, David, succumbed to Glioblastoma in 2012, at the age of 18. She was his caregiver throughout the 20 month battle and traveled with him to four different hospitals in four different states. The doctors and researchers they encountered on that journey led them to become passionate advocates for brain cancer research.
