Virtual Workshop Series

Join Kim Adams for our new series of online conversations

Tune in for our series of free, online conversations with experts, designed to give useful information and breathe life into difficult situations. Moderated by our Kim Adams, New Day’s Fundraising and Development Executive, these live 30-60 minute sessions are designed to give cancer patients, caregivers, and the surrounding community the tools and resources needed to live well.

Kim Adams is one of metro-Detroit’s most recognizable faces. Most remember her as a skilled meteorologist at WXYZ (ABC-Detroit) and WDIV (NBC-Detroit), and recent radio host at 98.7 The Breeze. Kim is a breast cancer survivor and considers being a single mom to five beautiful children her most rewarding endeavor.
