Honored by: Susan G. Komen Orange County

Cause Area: Healthcare

Since joining us less than a year ago Yvonne has helped with outreach, Race promotional activities, Komen and third party events, pre-Race registration and our Race day merchandise booth. She has helped at our reception desk every Tuesday afternoon and assisted with administrative aLovato_Yvonne.Susan G Komen.2jpgnd practical tasks. When Yvonne submitted her application to volunteer with us, she had recently undergone surgery and had just started chemotherapy. During this 6 month period of her treatment she did not miss a single office shift or an event that she signed up for. Unable to drive herself, she has relied on a transportation service to get her to all her volunteer shifts. Nothing has gotten in the way of her commitment to her volunteer work at Komen. At the reception desk she greets everyone with a warm, open smile and listens to people that want to talk about their journey with breast cancer with compassion and understanding. It has been such a pleasure getting to know Yvonne and have her become a part of our team. We recently awarded Yvonne with our 2016 Outstanding New
Volunteer award.
