Roslyn Romanowski, MD, Rceives Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Award
  Pictured Above: Dr. Romanowski with Michele Raymond, her patient, who nominated her for the Hope Award.

WomenStories board president, Roslyn Romanowski, MD, won the Hope Award at the May 2006 Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Survivors Luncheon(www.komen.org). Below is the nomination that one of her patients wrote about her that won her the award:

Have you ever heard of a doctor pulling up a chair, sitting down and asking, “So how are you toady?” Then the doctor listens, really listens to everything you have to say, every tear you have to cry, and every complaint you report. The doctor doesn’t care if you take five minutes or twenty. She’s there for you with medical expertise and advice, compassion and a smile. Dr. Roslyn Romanowski is just such a doctor. She deserves the Hope Award because she is a kind, caring and compassionate doctor who goes above and beyond the call of duty. Dr. Romanowski truly cares about women. Every time I leave her office, I step a little more lively and I believe a little more deeply that everything is going to be all right and that I will survive. The world would be a better place for breast cancer patients if more doctors cared as much about their patients as Dr. Romanowski. She truly gives new meaning to the word HOPE. Thank you doctor. You will never know how much you have changed my life for the better. God Bless you!

WomenStories is proud to have Dr. Romanowski lead our organization and help us impart that same caring and supportive attitude through our videos.
