Do you know someone who has provided tremendous support by serving as a caregiver for you or someone you love? Stefanie Spielman found that support from her husband, Chris Spielman, when he put his professional football career on hold to care for her when she was first treated for breast cancer in 1998. Stefanie and Chris established the Stefanie’s Champions Awards luncheon as an annual event to honor this important factor in cancer treatment, the loving and healing presence of a devoted caregiver. In fact, the first Stefanie’s Champions award was given to Chris.
Megan James’ relationship with Stefanie dates back to their Delta Gamma days at The Ohio State University. Stefanie made a significant impact on Megan’s life and she has made it her mission to help continue Stefanie’s goal of finding a cure for cancer. She does this by serving as a member of the Champions Committee , the group that organizes the luncheon each year.
The 15th Anniversary Stefanie’s Champions luncheon will take place at the Ohio Union on April 9, 2014. The time is now to submit your nomination. Click the link above to nominate your Champion. All submissions are due by January 15th.
