Donna Pitman

Donna is a journalist, wife and mother of enough children to possibly lose count: A stepson currently in Basic Training, a brilliant and kind 7 year old daughter training to be President, a 4 year old son with dimples, wit and charm for miles and a 2 year old son whose eyebrows hold a million sentiments and who - just like his "bigs" - holds his mother's heart. Donna and her husband Cody started the nonprofit "Gabriel's Gale: A Force to Fight Pompe" as a way to raise awareness of and eventually find a cure for the genetic disease (Donna prefers "disposition!") their son Gabriel has. A native of Independence, Missouri, Donna lives in Jackson County and finds comfort in her family, carbs and yoga pants.
