If Brett Favre is able to suit up this weekend for the Vikings and have the kind of impact that his wife, Deanna, had on a group of Eden Prairie Chamber of Commerce guests on Friday afternoon, the Purple will be in good shape against the Patriots.
Deanna gave an emotional and inspirational presentation Friday afternoon at the event and also presented $100,000 grants to both the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota and the Hope Chest For Breast Cancer Foundation on behalf of the Favre 4 Hope Foundation. The Favre 4 Hope Foundation was created when the Favres merged their two foundations.
Guests were both laughing and crying as Deanna elequently discussed her bout with cancer and her family’s drive to turn times of adversity into positive moments worth remembering.
Deanna explained that she relied on faith and family during her battle against breast cancer and she also spoke about the importance of turning a negative situation into something positive.
“But more than anything,” she said, “cancer taught me not to take life for granted. To wake each morning grateful just to have another day of stuff to do. And to close my eyes each night with a prayer of thanks.
“Life has thrown us several curves, but we always manage to find a way to turn it into something positive.”
