For my own records, I had to take a picture of my dear friend, Karin Hoy, who recently received the Volunteer of the Year 2009 Award from the Women’s Cancer Awareness Group. Despite her 80 years, she continues to be an active and charming supporter of this important woman’s health organization.
Karin is the also the mother of the founder, Lydia Zipp, who started WCAG after she & her sister were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and realized how little information was available at that time.
Today, the non-profit organization provides fun, educational and supportive programs for cancer survivors, and awareness of the risk factors and symptoms of gynecologic cancers.
