Entrant: Kath Mazzella
Nominee: Jeanette Preston, Founder of PANTS
Jeanette is an amazing woman. She is a Gyn Cancer Survivor, a nurse and a Methodist Preacher. She has all the experience in the world to share her wonderful experience and knowledge. She came to the Royal College of Gyn/Obstetrics United Kingdom with me to lobby for an International Gyn Awareness Day (IGAD) . From this meeting she picked up the banner – took back to her home city the idea of IGAD -where Dr. Lopez, Gyn and Jeanette celebrated the day in style – bringing in medical professionals and community together.
Bravo Jeanette – you are a winner in my eyes. Go Jeanette!!
