Because I support breast cancer awareness and research, receiving an Excellence in Cancer Journalism Award from the American Cancer Society was especially gratifying.
This media award is given to radio, television, newspaper and magazine journalists, and I was honored to be one of only 16 recognized by the American Cancer Society throughout Hawaii, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.
Here’s the story and layout. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
“Through these stories, the public has learned more about cancer research, treatment, early detection, how to get help, and what it feels like to be a cancer survivor,” said Jackie Bayly-Bryant, vice-president of the Division Communications Department, American Cancer Society.
