The Team, The Silver Linings, was started by Debra Schwartz Sapcariu in 2015 after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Debra felt that whatever happened in her life, there was always a positive – a silver lining to be found! Debra had younger twin brothers, Jeff and Barry Schwartz and when she was diagnosed, they helped her and her daughter Anna, in every way possible. Both Jeff and Barry have their own companies and so they both sponsored the Frederick Maryland Chapter Walk each year and were both top fundraisers for many years. Sadly, Debra died in April of 2022. Debra was passionate about NOCC ‘s Mission and after her death, the whole family took up her cause. In 2023, Jeff Schwartz and his family and friends raised over $72,000 for The Silver Linings – the highest fundraiser in the Nation! In 2023, Jeff and his daughter Taryn will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for ovarian cancer.
