|2009 KOH Awards Gala (Lois, Dee, Carole)|
Lois was a driving force in NJ and even in Washington DC as she raised awareness and funds for an early detection test for ovarian cancer and ultimately a cure for the disease. She also gave me hope that I could live a long life. We left the KOH Board around the same time ( I rejoined the Board earlier this year) and we stayed in touch via e-mail and Facebook.
Sadly those occasional messages have come to an end. Lois passed away yesterday, November 29, 2016.
Over 18 years as an Ovarian Cancer Survivor. She will be missed by her community of Teal Sisters and the entire ovarian cancer advocacy community.
Rest in Peace Lois.
Every Day is a Blessing!
