While the Wings of Hope began to remember our mother, Barbara, we know so many friends and family who have lost loved ones to cancer. Starting in 2012, we named our first “Wings of Hope Tribute”. We chose Ms Fran, one of our friends mom, who also lost her battle with cancer. Fran was special to us because she was battling cancer at the same time as Barb…and the two of them formed a bond that was unbreakable. Fran’s daughter, Angie Martin gave an unforgettable speech at our banquet dinner that honored the life of her mother as well as her battle with cancer. Read it here.
By remembering all those we have lost – we can stand together to not only remember them…but to truly make a difference!
