Cancer Family Care’s Unsung Hero Awards Dinner was held on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at the Kingsgate Marriott.
In 2003, Cancer Family Care established the Unsung Hero Awards in memory of Joslin Haggart Yeiser. According to her husband, Eric Yeiser, Joslin was a quiet hero.
“It is fitting that the Unsung Hero Awards be named for Joslin,” Mr. Yeiser explains. “Even in her last months, when she was suffering from cancer and in pain, she was still able to maintain her smile, sense of humor, and served as an inspiration to all who knew her.”
The Unsung Hero Awards honor and celebrate the many acts of quiet heroism performed by cancer patients and the people who care for them.
“It was a true honor to be nominated by a former patient. Oncology work is difficult but oh-so rewarding.”
