Caregivers are Honored as CVS/pharmacy Announces Winners of the 'For All the Ways You Care' Contest
Date:3/3/2008

age of 29. A few years later, her daughter Christina, just six years old, was thrown into the role of a caregiver. Today at age 16, while most teenagers across the country are spending time with friends, preparing for college or spending idle time on the Internet, Christina assists her mother with everything from cleaning, cooking and taking care of the home, to basic tasks that her mother struggles with like tying her own shoes. In hopes of attending college, Christina also works part time to save money.

Rhonda Marie St. Louis (Gilbert, AZ) -- As a special education teacher, Rhonda met Jamar Ballard over 16 years ago while she was student teaching. Jamar's mother could not afford quality preschool for Jamar, who was a toddler at the time, and Rhonda worked with him daily to provide some educational lessons using techniques she was learning in school. She bonded with Jamar and kept in touch with him, despite the family's relocation that took them out of state. One by one Jamar's siblings began to drop out of school but Rhonda's support provided Jamar with hope for education. Jamar now lives with Rhonda and is a sophomore in high school with hopes to attend college.

Denise Waller (Fries, VA) -- Last summer, Denise, a CVS/pharmacy pharmacy technician, donated a kidney to a co-worker who was gravely ill with diabetes. Jenifer Utt had suffered from diabetes since age 5, and when her kidneys began to fail it was determined she needed a transplant. When Denise discovered that her blood type matched Jenifer's, she offered her kidney without hesitation. The surgery, performed July 5, 2007, was a success. Denise was nominated by a number of her colleagues.

Prizes will be awarded this afternoon at a celebratory luncheon at Tavern on The Green in New York. The luncheon marks the culmination of a luxury weekend getaway for Finalists and a guest.
