“Congratulations to all the Unsung Heroes recognized by Cancer Family Care! It was an incredibly moving evening that not only honored healthcare professionals but also the dedicated caregivers and courageous patients.

It was great night out with many of our St. Elizabeth Healthcare cancer team members (6 tables of them?!) and our nominated patients, enjoying time together away from our usual settings.

It’s also the one night when all of our systems from the region come together, allowing me to reconnect with many wonderful physicians, nurses, friends at all of the systems in town, and former mentors from my time at the University of Cincinnati and OHC. We truly feel like part of one large cancer-fighting family on this special evening. want to sustain that sense of unity throughout the year. Our patients benefit greatly when we work together. Such events remind us of the strong community around us.

Another special night, thanks for putting this one in every year Jill Settlemyre, Anne Luecke, LOCAL 12, WKRC-TV and team.”
