Entrant: Dyan Osborn

Nominee: Keleigh M. Lee, Researcher in Health Behavior Studies

My daughter is one remarkable woman.  She is 30 years old and the Mother of 3 very young children and pregnant with her fourth! She has a passion for helping woman. She crusades diligently in causes for health improvement.

She leads the way in her own lifestyle, from home births, tandem nursing and eating organic and sugar free. Her research for her Masters Degree was on Cancer and smoking in woman of college age.  She is studying to become a certified lactation consultant.  Her PHD work will be on improving breast feeding in  low income woman.

I am amazed at her drive and energy to help woman learn to take better care of themselves.  She continues to encourage me in my health struggles with a positive energy she omits to anyone she meets.

Please consider my nomination, not just because she is one of my daughters…but because she is such a warrior for woman of all ages!
