In 2013, Darren was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM), an aggressive form of brain cancer. Rather than giving into 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 love for people. The way in which he lived every day.
We have all been impacted by Darren 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. This is why he chose to use his notoriety to bring awareness and funding to this disease.
After a courageous battle, Darren passed away from his bout with 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.
