It was never supposed to be about me. It was about doing the right and decent things in life for others. It was about teaching my children that another life does matter, no matter what race, creed, color or religion. My wife, Colleen, and I have taught our children that life is not easy. With that said, we have donated our time and resources to make our community a little bit better." n Winter Garden As a way to give back to the Orlando community, Winter Garden resident Frank Campbell, coprincipal of Campbell + Van Dusen Design Studio, agreed to partner with Choices Women’s Clinic to design its new facility.
