Barbara Weigand: 9th District, 2011 Peggy A. Montes Unsung Heroine of Cook County Award Winner

WHEREAS, we recognize Barbara Weigand, from the 9th Cook County District as a co-founder of the Strike at Cancer Foundation, a family founded organization which grew from a single fundraising event (a bowling tournament) to a foundation which now supports cancer patients of all ages, as well as their families.  We applaud Ms. Weigand’s passion as she directs programs, such as the Healing Arts Program, for these very special patients and their families.
