THE STORY:

 

Hello All, This fundraising Memorial page has been started in the name of our good friend and colleague Bryan Beal at the request of his husband. Bryan was taken from us too soon and suddenly on Monday, August 17, 2015.

Bryan and his husband Brian (yes really...only a Y and I could distinguish them) were together for 18 years and were married in NYC in 2013. They have two daughters and one beautiful granddaughter. Bryan was a friend, father and grandfather.

Bryan, for many years, was the Executive Director of the American Diabetes Association. He covered more than half the state of Florida and was responsible for raising more than $2.5 million annually for diabetes research and education programs.

Bryan also served as a legislative aide to the Florida House of Representatives and Florida State Senate for five years plus served as a campaign strategist and public relations consultant. Bryan also worked with the UCF College of Medicine as a "standardized patient", helping to train the doctors of tomorrow on how best to deal with patients.

Most recently Bryan had joined the staff of The Center Orlando as their Director of Community Development. Bryan had seen the devastating increase in HIV infections in Orlando (HIV infections are up 47%) and felt this needed to be part of his mission. He was working diligently to raise funds so that The Center could purchase a mobile HIV testing vehicle that would go out into the community to test, educate and possibly help slow down the infection rates.

Please help us keep Bryan's legacy alive. The funds raised here will go directly towards continuing what Bryan had wanted, to secure that van. Once we have enough funds, we will purchase, retrofit, and wrap it. We will also attach a plaque to it naming it "The Bryan Beal Memorial Testing Van".

Thank you in advance, Bryan lived to make this world a better place and we hope to make his dream come true
