Eric Yeiser recalls his wife, Joslin Haggart Yeiser, as a quiet hero. “She did it her own way, without complaint. She accepted her cancer and did the best with it.” Mrs. Yeiser was an active volunteer for numerous charities throughout her life. A mother of four, she adored music and nature. “It is fitting that the Unsung Hero Awards be named for Joslin,” explained Mr. Yeiser. “Even in her last months, when she was suffering from cancer and in pain, she was still able to maintain her smile and sense of humor.”
The Mission of Cancer Family Care is to strengthen the well-being and alleviate the suffering of any child, adult, or family coping with Cancer.
The evening of May 10th is dedicated to the "unsung hero" celebrating cancer patients, caregivers and oncology professionals who have made a difference in Greater Cincinnati.
