Gaddy health facility

For 18 years, Bea Gaddy has been an advocate for the homeless. Not only has she fed thousands, but she has begun programs to foster youth education and to help people with addictions and AIDS. She has even opened a furniture bank.

Her latest venture is the Bea Gaddy Human Resource anCancer Centers Inc., which she hopes will become a one-stop health facility for the poor. Celebrity attorney David Cohan recently organized a fund-raiser for the centers and celebration of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center's donation of a building to house Gaddy's foundation at 1017 E. Baltimore St.

Among those who came by Martin's West to show support foGaddy's projects were Ravens player Eric Green; Terry Willis, who works for the Ravens organization; Patrick Tracy, Diversified Insurance Industries VP; Mukul Mehta, president of Mayflower Textile Services; Paul William Eckert II, First National Bank VP; Dr. Nisha Chibber Chandra, Johns Hopkins Bayview; and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ellen Sauerbrey. Unfortunately, Gaddy was undergoing treatment for breast cancer, but she greeted guests on video from the hospital. - S. B.
