Donna Swenson came into my life on the cold winter day in February of 1980 while living in Addison, Illinois. My family & I were first generation immigrants & asylum seekers. Donna Swenson & Nancy Travnicek pulled up to our doorsteps in a sportscar, young & sassy, with the free spirited attitude of 'I am going to bring about world peace!' She rev the clutch with incredible vitality and then pick up a device pretending to talk into it. Nancy pointed to me at the end of her conversation that she was one of the few individual to have a car equipped with cellphone at the time. Donna then bragged her husband work at a car dealership and she get a new car every other year!

Thank you for being a part of our life Donna! You have inspired me to help others and to live my life to the fullest!
