Honor Thy Healer

Marin Breast Cancer Watch's First Annual

Honor Thy Healer Awards Celebration

May 6, 2000  6:00 PM

Novato, California

Honor Thy Healer is a annual formal awards event to acknowledge individuals who have shown remarkable intelligence, strength and compassion in the multi-faceted effort to understand and treat breast cancer.

The objective for this year's event was to establish this event as the primary fund raiser for the organization to be presented biannually. We raised little over $70,000 at this first ever event which will be used to further our search into why Marin has the extremely high rate of breast cancer and how to stop the epidemic.

The event celebrated the work of four individuals in the categories of support services, education, alternative & complementary therapy and conventional medicine whose work has helped others in their struggle with breast cancer. Candidates for the Honor Thy Healer Award  were nominated by breast cancer survivors and selected by a special panel consisting of community leaders, educators, political leaders, scientists and breast cancer activists. 

These "Healers" were honored at the awards ceremony of this event. A champagne/wine reception, silent auction and award ceremony for 480 attendees will be held in Marin, with live music, entertainment and celebrity presenters.

We want to than the following sponsors that made the event possible.
