I’m honored to have been bestowed the prestigious Lily Tartikoff/E.I.F. Hope Award at the 2010 National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship Rays of Hope Gala in Washington, D.C.! YAHOOOO! The other honorees for the evening were Ted Kennedy’s autobiography, True Compass (which was accepted by his children, Ted Jr, Pat, and Kara), and Abbe Raven, head of A&E Television Networks. A pretty darn esteemed group, eh? Cheers to the other Rays of Hope, and extra special thank you to Lily Tartikoff, one of my all-time heroes, for personally extending this honor to me. And here’s to the NCCS for all of the incredible work they do to support cancer patients and their families.
My acceptance speech was lovingly captured by my twin sis, Elisa! Check it out below:
