Stefanie Spielman established Stefanie’s Champions to recognize one of the most critical factors in surviving cancer: loving, unwavering support. In Stefanie’s case, such support during her battle with breast cancer came from her husband, Chris. To show her gratitude, Stefanie gave Chris the very first Champion award in 2000. Stefanie’s battle ended in 2009, but it was her hope that all cancer survivors could name someone who stood by them, gave them courage and helped them through.
As we celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Stefanie’s Champions, we continue to honor those whose dedication and strength are powerful influences in the lives of cancer survivors, while also recognizing organizations and individuals who go above and beyond to further our vision of a cancer-free world.
Nominations are now closed. Please join us for the Stefanie’s Champions Luncheon event for the awards presentation.15th Anniversary Stefanie’s Champions Luncheon
