Roxanne Kramer Award Presented to Jean Dean
Jean Dean of Davenport was honored as the sixth annual Roxanne Kramer Award recipient at Trinity Health Foundation's Stylin' Against Breast Cancer Luncheon and Style Show held Thursday, April 23. She, the leader of the Quad-City Breast Cancer Support Group (QCBCSG), was nominated by Lori Smith and Roxanne Kramer herself due to her constant fight not only for herself but also for other survivors. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002.
This annual honor is given to an outstanding individual(s), organization or business that has tirelessly contributed to the quality of life of breast cancer survivors and which through deed, word and ongoing advocacy, has helped educate the community about breast cancer and breast health.
Kramer, a breast cancer survivor herself, owns "Always a Woman" boutique in Moline that specializes in wigs, head wear, specialty bras and fits breast prostheses for breast cancer survivors.

You Did It!
Thanks to the generosity and caring of you, our wonderful donor, your new Emergency Department/Heart Center will begin welcoming patients April 2015!
Originally announced in January, 2013, Trinity officials formally broke ground on the 90,000 square-foot, 3-story expansion in June 2013.
The new space will include an all-new state-of-the-art emergency department with 2 trauma bays to treat more than one profoundly injured patient at the same time; a comprehensive Heart Center with cath labs, surgery, cardiac rehab and education; and a Crisis Stabilization Unit with 6 psychiatric patient safe rooms, interview rooms, and a "living room" area that will help calm those in crisis.
Your support helped raise $6.75 million for this amazing QC resource. It would not exist without you. Please come see it during the Community Open House, Sun. March 29, noon - 5 p.m.!
For all the patients and family members who will benefit every hour of every day, thank you!
