Nominee for 2010 Samaritan of the Year Award
Lenore is incredible. She has been a "big sister" for BBBS for over 10 years to a girl is still part of "our family." She is constantly organizing fundraising "antics" through her job and did so in her previous job at Internal Medicine. But it's the little things. On more than one occasion, I have been approached by people who ask "Is Lenore your sister?" and they go on to tell me a story about how when they were down or sick that Lenore had left them something, like an angel or little memento that lifted their spirit (this is the real stuff that makes her so special). She has a niece and nephew that have had family difficulties that she has taken under her wing. People confide in her about their relationships and decisions and she gives them honest feedback. Did I mention that she is a mother of 2 (5 & 3) and has an aggressive form of rheumatoid arthritis for which she has to take infusion treatments. And she still has an immense amount of energy to give.
