Breast Cancer Coalition Call for Nominations for the Heart & Hands Award
The Breast Cancer Coalition is seeking nominations from breast or gynecologic cancer survivors for the 2023 Laurie Pask Heart & Hands Award. This award is given annually to a cancer care provider whose approach to your care reflects the balance of kindness, compassion, respect, and science that Laurie Pask demonstrated while providing care to her own patients with passion, hope, and joy. Only nominations from patients/survivors will be considered.
The Heart & Hands Award is named in honor of Laurie Pask, an early member of our “Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer Common Ground” Group. Those who knew Laurie knew her as a kind and caring wife, sister, daughter, niece, and friend.
Nominations are due by 10:00pm, Sunday, May 14th, 2023.
