Stefanie Spielman established Stefanie’s Champions
to recognize one of the most critical factors in surviving cancer:
loving, unwavering support. In Stefanie’s case, such support during her
battle with breast cancer came from her husband, Chris. To show her
gratitude, Stefanie gave Chris the very first Champion award in 2000.
Stefanie’s battle ended in 2009, but it was her hope that all cancer
survivors could name someone who stood by them, gave them courage and
helped them through. Stefanie and Chris established Stefanie’s Champions to recognize one of the most critical factors in surviving cancer: loving, unwavering support. To read the touching stories of past Stefanie's Champions awardees, please click on the links to the left.
As we celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Stefanie’s Champions, we continue to honor those whose dedication and
strength are powerful influences in the lives of cancer survivors, while
also recognizing organizations and individuals who go above and beyond
to further our vision of a cancer-free world.
