Fran DeFilippis was the owner and operator of Inprint Business Printing Centre Inc., in Toronto, Canada. In 2000 she sold the business to her largest competitor. In 2001, after the birth of her second child, she became a chocolatier and started a part-time truffle company to keep her business skills polished. She was happily settling into young parenthood, with two children, Kirsten, and Marcus, when a workplace tragedy suddenly struck. Many things changed for her since that fateful day. Her life and her family's lives were forever changed. She was recently awarded a degree in child development, and she is now applying knowledge she acquired. She volunteers at Hospice King Aurora and is a volunteer of Threads of Life, A Workplace Tragedy Family Support Association, and is a member of its Speakers Bureau.
