The Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award
The Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award honors the memory of Carol Jones and Jennifer Hendryx, who both passed away from metastatic breast cancer in late 2017. Their optimism and determination throughout their fight with metastatic disease was an inspiration to others and helped Komen Northeast Ohio renew our commitment to raising awareness of Stage 4 breast cancer. The Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award recognizes an individual, corporation, or organization who champions the Komen promise with the courage and limitless boundaries of Carol and Jennifer. The nominee goes beyond the scope of activist to inspire others to help in the fight against metastatic disease.
The 2018 Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award was presented to Wendy Kozel of Metavivor.
In partnership with
Hospice of the Western Reserve, Metavivor, Northeast Ohio Chapter, The Gathering Place, and
