In 2001 Devard Darling lost his twin brother, Devaughn, while attending and playing football at Florida State University. Many people can’t imagine the heartache of losing a sibling, let alone a twin. Devard began the As One Foundation with the intention of celebrating his brother’s life and honoring his legacy. He also wanted to do everything he could to help save other families from experiencing the same pain from something that is so preventable.
