Husband (Angelo Faenza) and Three Children (William, Theresa, and Alicia).
Resides in Suffield, Connecticut. Works for ASSA ABLOY as Director of Security Consultant Relations.
Dana lost her oldest child, William, an Army National Guard Veteran at the age of 24 on January 2, 2017 to suicide.
Since losing her son, Dana started a 501 (c) 3 non-profit called WILL Power for Veterans Fund, Inc.
Dana is dedicated to implement change and accountability within our broken system to better align and support our combat veterans. Our country loses, on average, 22 veterans every single day to suicide from their emotional wounds.
Her mission is to build a retreat center for our veterans and first responders who serve our country and communities. It’s a way to give back to those who sacrifice so much for our country’s freedom. The vision is a no-charge stay, designed for small groups, who suffer in similar ways, to come together to bond and to heal.
Please follow us on our website www.willingnesstochange22.com and social media @WillsWillpower to help spread awareness, join in fundraising events, and for updates as it relates to the progress of the retreat center.
