UPDATE—READ THE 2012 NOMINATIONS
Click see the collection of heartwarming Angel nominations on the Miles of Hope website.
The Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation announced a program to honor the people who help to care for their loved one going through treatment for breast cancer.
“This is an opportunity to recognize the family member, friend, or colleague who is integral to the recovery of the breast cancer patient,” explained Pari Forood, Executive Director of Miles of Hope.
“We are asking anyone who has been through treatment for breast cancer to nominate their angel by sending us a testimonial with photos if they have them, explaining how their angel helped them. It does not have to be a long narrative. We will honor all angels and their nominator at the 8th Annual Spring Brunch on May 6, at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie. The essays and photos will then be available for viewing at the Miles of Hope website at www.milesofhope.org,” she continued.
All entries must be received by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 20, 2012, and all photos/testimonials become property of Miles of Hope. There is no fee to nominate an angel, and attendance at the Brunch is not required.
“Every time I speak with a breast cancer survivor, they tell me about the person or people who helped them. We feel it is time to bring that person into the limelight,” said Cathy Varunok, Co-founder of Miles of Hope.
