Jeanna Richelson, OCF member/survivor/Chattanooga Walk Organizer has won the Jefferson Award for Tennessee! The award is for volunteerism and making a difference in her community. Jeanna will be heading to Washington DC in June to speak about oral cancer. I can't think of a better person to represent OCF and the disease. Congratulations to an amazing person!!

Jeannas walk is set for April 28th!! I will be attending as well, so if you live in the area come out to support the event and Jeanna!!
