In honor of Ambassador Quincy

Quincy Farmer served as the Kenmure Fights Cancer Ambassador for three years. He died in July 2020 from Hemangiosarcoma, a cancer that mostly affects dogs and is rare in humans.

During his term as Ambassador, he attended all our events and was the inspiration for many emails about our events. It seems only fitting that we show him seated next to the azaleas planted in honor of Joanne Jones, Kenmure Fights Cancer founder, who also died of cancer.

Quincy returned in Spring 2020 to tell everyone about Autobell Car Wash Tickets (see video below).

Thanks to his parents, Georgie and Mike, for sharing him with us. And thanks to you, Quincy, for helping Kenmure Fights Cancer. See you at the Rainbow Bridge.


This video shows how much fun we had using Quincy

to tell about Kenmure Fights Cancer events.

My Kenmure Fights Cancer History

by Quincy Farmer (2014)

For those of you who are new to Kenmure, here's how I came to be the Kenmure Fights Cancer Ambassador.

In 2013 I traveled across the country with my human parents, Mike and Georgie Farmer. Dad rode his bike all the way - at the AMAZING age of 70! Mom and I were his support team. It was lots of fun and we raised lots of money for Kenmure Fights Cancer. Learn all about the ride and me in this Guide Dog Foundation Newsletter Article.

At that time, I thought I was on the way to becoming a Guide Dog, but that was not to be. Turns out I am a "psychogenic water drinker." What's that? I won't go into all the details here, but it means that I LOVE drinking water and what goes in must come out, entailing too many potty stops for a blind person to handle.

So, just as I was digesting the news that I didn't make the cut as a Guide Dog, I received a proposition from the folks at Kenmure Fights Cancer. They asked me to represent them and get my picture taken with the committee, the folks at Pardee and Park Ridge (now AdventHealth Hendersonville) and donors to the awesome Treasure Trove raffle, to name a few. I answered with big WOOF! (That's YES! in human speak).

I am very proud of my special vest. It was made by my friends Miss Beckie (Ouderkirk) and Miss Patty (Truax) and my Mom. It has the Kenmure Fights Cancer logo on it and you have to admit, I do look quite handsome in it.
