Our Featured Guests


David Moore with Erin, Andrew and Emily 

David Moore is the owner of RPM Photography + Cinematography. Since 1999, he has written, produced and edited a wide variety of videos for some of Kansas City’s most trusted and respected corporations and non-profits. David has produced every video Cancer Action has used in our fundraising events. He tells our story in a powerful way.

 David and his family have their own story of cancer survivorship that they will share with us at the breakfast. You may remember his wife, Rachel, shared her story with us at the 2020 breakfast. She bravely fought stage 4 colon cancer for more than two years, and lost her battle on October 25, 2021, at the age of 42. David and his children will share about their survivorship journey having lost their wife and mother. They have sought to honor her and her life

through their special ways of remembering a life well-lived and much-loved.  We are grateful they are willing to share with us a part of their continued journey.

Eboni Fondren is one of the most highly sought after and premiere jazz vocalists in Kansas City and has become a bandleader in her own right.  In addition to her own musical projects which include Eboni and the Ivories, and a member of the Lost Wax Band, Eboni collaborates with some of  Kansas City's top musicians and can be heard swinging all over the local jazz scene.


She has been featured on the cover of The Jam Magazine and performed for the groundbreaking of the new single terminal airport at MCI, sung the national anthem for the Women's National Gymnastics Championship and the NCAA Big 12 Tournaments. 

As an actress and voice over artist, she has lit up the stage with feature roles at some of Kansas City's top Theatre Companies in productions. We are so thrilled to have her share her beautiful voice, passion and heart with us as she performs at our Champions for Survivorship Breakfast!
