Deveney Choquette was only 17 years old when she lost her mother to breast cancer. Since then, she has dedicated her life to helping other people in need, especially those battling cancer. However, now it is her who needs help. She is battling the same kind of cancer that claimed her mother’s life. On Saturday, two of her friends, homegrown musical talents – Tod Pronto and Wayne Warner, hosted a benefit concert for Deveney at the Goodrich Memorial Library in Newport. The venue was filled with her supporters!
