Allison Byrd-Haley has taken on various rolls in health care for the past 20 years. She has volunteered for different projects in the community to make a difference. The nonprofit, Heavenly Mimi, was started in memory of her mom who lost her battle with cancer in 2011. Her goal is to help those that are diagnosed with cancer who battle with the financial hardships of cancer treatments. Allison understands about having a financial hardship herself because of her personal experience with it in 1998 with her son's diagnosis with cancer. Allison wants to help those that are in the situation that she was in at one time in her life. She strives everyday to empower those she comes into contact with.
