Denise Waller, a CVS/pharmacy pharmacy technician from Fries, VA was also named a winner in a similar For All The Ways You Care contest for employees.
The For All The Ways You Care contest winners were selected by an esteemed panel of women supporting the For All The Ways You Care campaign: Lee Woodruff, author and the wife of ABC News Correspondent and Anchor Bob Woodruff; Alma Powell, chair of America's Promise Alliance and wife of Colin Powell; women's health experts Dr. Donnica Moore and Dr. Alice Domar; and Ladies' Home Journal Editor-in-Chief, Diane Salvatore.
"For All The Ways You Care celebrates caregivers of all kinds and it's been very rewarding for me to have played an integral role in the campaign," said Woodruff. "My fellow panelists and I were touched and inspired by the many stories of caring we reviewed. It was a challenge to select just one as the winner but we are delighted to see all of these caregivers honored today."
