The Board of Directors and staff of Women Supporting Women are proud to announce that their Executive Director, Sue Revelle, has been named one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women for 2011! A Registered Nurse who also works at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC), Sue co-founded the non-profit Women Supporting Women (WSW) in 1993. The group started out of her home after discovering the need to help women through their journey with breast cancer. With offices now in Salisbury, Berlin and Crisfield, WSW still fulfills its original mission: To provide awareness, education and support to all those who are affected by breast cancer.
A grass-roots organization, all of WSW’s funding stays right here on Delmarva to provide free services and support to local breast cancer survivors, their families and friends. Included are: Community education and awareness, informational tote bags, lending library, lift chair loaner program, mentoring services, post-surgery comfort pillows, support group meetings, wigs, hats and scarves. For more information, please stop by or call one of our offices, or visit us on the web at www.womensupportingwomen.org
Other award winners from the Eastern Shore this year include Peggy Naleppa from PRMC, and Thelma B. Thompson and Veronique Diriker, both from UMES. The award ceremony will take place on May 9 at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, MD.
