About Dana Callery:
A beautiful soul on the inside and out, Dana is supported with love by a close-knit family and tight circle of friends, most of whom she’s known her entire life. She’s passionate about her two dogs, Sophie and Scooby, and loves traveling, cooking, and all types of culinary experiences. Because of the severity of her recent treatments, the latter has been rather tough for Dana. For the past six months, she’s received all daily nutrition through liquid supplements via a feeding tube that’s directly inserted into her stomach. It is Dana’s wish to improve enough in the next several months so the tube can be removed and she can once again return to the joys of cooking and eating.
