Then she’d send the tape to her grandparents so they could see where they lived. As the daughter of a Military Naval Officer the family moved often… so there were plenty of tapes mailed out.
She says she feels very privileged to be able to tell stories and to keep viewers informed about what is happening in their community.
In October of 2006, Maria was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. But instead of hiding her diagnosis, Durant decided to share her story in hopes of helping others.
Durant is involved with several cancer organizations … and as a Filipino she especially wants young Asian American Women to know that it can happen to them. But that early detection is the key.
She is also involved with many other community organizations such as the Asian Festival, The Columbus International Program, and The National Kidney Foundation,
