We are so honored to be a part of the wonderful group of professionals who will be recognized at this year’s Legacy of Hope Gala, Imagine…More Birthdays!-our cover story this month. When Moe and I found out we would be receiving the Legacy of Hope Award for Leadership in Community Awareness, we were truly humbled. We are pleased to have been a part of the American Cancer Society and their efforts to help fight cancer and will continue to support their efforts. As a cancer survivor, it is a privilege for me to share the cover with the doctors of Vantage Oncology, who will be receiving the Leadership in Health Care Award. I’ve experienced firsthand the commitment and dedication of these professionals, particularly Dr. Zimmerman, who was my radiation doctor. These doctors work tirelessly to help their patients and ensure they have access to life-enhancing services. Also on our cover is Judith Harris, two-time cancer patient and ACS supporter. Judith will be receiving the 2011 Award of Distinction. The Gala will take place on August 14 at Robinson Ranch. For the complete cover story and details, see facing page.
On August 4, College of the Canyons student, Nicholas Flores will be honored at the SCV Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Because of Nicholas’ patriotism, leadership and courage as he served our country in the war on terror, he is the first recipient of the Ian Gelig Desert/Storm/Operation Enduring Freedom Warrior Scholarship. Thank you Nicholas, and to all who have fought or continue to fight for the freedoms we enjoy today. For more information on the luncheon or the scholarship program see page 10.
