When I think of a woman to nominate…it would be my dear friend Karla. She is an amazing woman who has lost her mother to breast cancer in 2007 and her grandmother this last year, every year since her mother’s passing she has supported the City of Hope Walk for Hope while teaching her 7 children and others to live a healthy life. Through her daily life events of caring for her family, the kids’ school homework and events, gardening, and full-time work, she has even made time for her education so she can graduate this year with a double Master’s degree. Karla has been my role model as I watch and learn new things from her. I am honored to have her as a true friend and respect the woman she has become!
