Women Helping Women
The 19th Annual Women Helping Women Luncheon was held on Friday, Oct. 28 at Blue Ridge Community College. Delwin Hyder, Karen Orr Haug and Bobbie Trotter were honored as this year’s Women of Hope at the sold-out event, which raised more than $160,000 to help uninsured or under-insured women receive a mammogram or other important health screenings. At the luncheon, which welcomed a record 460 attendees, WLOS News 13 anchor and cancer survivor Jay Siltzer introduced keynote speaker Joan Lunden, former host of Good Morning America, bestselling author and cancer survivor.
Thank you to our sponsors, committee members, and supporters who made the luncheon a huge success. Because of you, we can continue to provide advanced, coordinated, and compassionate care to women in our community.
Women Helping Women is a program that supports women in WNC by offering both financial and emotional support to those who need it. What started in 1998 as a group of women offering means to pay for various cancer screenings and treatment has transformed into a large philanthropy of women offering the resources, strength, and hope to help them get through various medical conditions.
