A woman of caring should be the next 'Woman of the Year'

Employee News & Views Editor: May 17, 20120 Comments

One of our Community Regional Medical Center oncology nurses has been nominated as a candidate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year honor.  Jane Watt, has been working to raise $8,000 – or more – to help support the society’s mission to find cures for blood cancers and to assist patients and their families as they navigate through these devastating illnesses.

Jane says she was raised in an “all medical family” and always wanted to become a nurse. “Having worked as an oncology nurse for almost 30 years,” Jane writes, “I have witnessed firsthand what these patients and their families go through as they battle for their lives. We need to work harder to find cures for this disease to bring back hope to those who so desperately need it.”

Jane first became involved with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in 2004 when she joined the cycling team to train for her first century ride. She’s completed 11 century rides since then as part of the Central Valley Cycling Charitable Association and helped raise money for a new blood mobile for the Central California Blood Bank last year.

Jane asks anyone who is interested in helping her efforts to email jcwatt@thegrid.net. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that hers is the name announced as “Woman of the Year” on Saturday, May 19, at Copper River Country Club during the society’s event.
