Della White Cancer Research
This webpage is dedicated to the ever-living memory of
Della M. White who passed from this life on January 17, 2011. We are providing this webpage to assist those who are struggling with breast cancer, or supporting those who do, and to
help promote and fund the research needed to find a cure for this deadly disease. An estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed in women in the US in 2010 and
nearly 40,000 women died as a result of breast cancer. Although, according to the US Bureau of Statistics, breast cancer incidence rates in the US decreased by about 2% per year from
1999 to 2006, every death touches families and friends all across the US. Della's life touched thousands of people and her legacy will continue to be upheld by those who loved her.
Della M. White took her first class with NORMI in 2005. Her interest in the indoor air quality industry and love for teaching prompted her to respond to a company call for teachers
that same year. After having successfully passed the "NORMI Train the Trainers" program, Della dedicated whatever extra time she had to sit-in and complete every class and certification
NORMI offers because she wanted to educate herself to better train her students. She conducted onsite classes, developed online courses, established professionalism criteria for all
trainings and became the "Voice of NORMI" by offering her talents every Tuesday Night in NORMI Continuing Education Training. Her dedication to her art of training and her genuine love
for people immediately became apparent to all.
In January of 2008 Della was invited to serve on the NORMI Board of Directors to help set the agenda and direction for the organization. Her interest in the industry and raising
education standards became apparent immediately in every discussion regarding the integrity and accuracy of education in this field. However, her work was not simply academic. She,
along with her husband Roy, operated a very successful mold assessment, indoor air quality inspection and mold remediation company in their hometown of Ft. Myers, FL and she was
actively involved in BNI and other professional organizations. She was considered an expert in her field among newsman and was often contacted to report on the current status of the
industry, licensing and innovative solutions. She was always professional, courteous and never lost her loving touch while helping her clients. She was a great colleague and friend and
will be deeply missed.
