BTFC Mourns Trisha Rushing Duguay’s Passing

Just four months after her wedding day, 27 year old Trisha Rushing Duguay passed away Friday morning.  Her tragic story “From Bride to Angel” touched thousands of people.  The headaches which she attributed to pre-wedding jitters were sadly caused by a brain tumor.  Surgeons were unable to remove the entire tumor, resulting in a coma.  In accordance with her wishes, Trisha’s new husband and parents were forced to seek hospice care for her.

BTFC is saddened by her death and touched that her family requested donations in her honor to be made to the Foundation to help children.
