Never allowing her disabilities to hinder her,she was even named the March of dimes spokesperson in May of 1984. She was always the life of the party.

Her personality lit up the room and to assure she gave it just a little more sparkle,she would don her signature gold eye shadow. Candace' loved to travel and spend time with her family. Her nieces and nephews were all affectionately known as her "babies". She loved watching sports, Jerry Springer, and surfing the chat lines on the internet usually while enjoying a Pepsi"Soder".
