We are really excited to announce that we will be presenting our inaugural Advocate Award to the Dexter Family at our 5th Annual FIGHT C. DIFF Gala on Friday, October 24, 2014, Joining our Innovator Award recipients, Dr. Bruce Hirsch and Dr. Gerard Honig, we will be honoring the husband and children of the late Judy Dexter, who perished from a Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infection in May 2013. In the immediate aftermath of Judy’s death, her family asked that donations be made the Peggy Lillis Foundation. Determined to prevent other families from suffering such a devastating loss, Charles Dexter and his children, Rich, Scott, Mike and Kirsten, decided to start an annual picnic and cornhole tournament in Savage, Maryland.
