“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Linda is own town’s hero! She became overwhelmed by the death of her granddaughter two years ago from cancer. Stricken by the knowledge that more finding could have helped Rayanna, Linda took to hosting a fundraiser for St. Baldricks. Every year they make a goal and every year Linda and her family and friends and neighbors top that goal. It’s an amazingly hard volunteer job, but you wouldn’t know it from Linda, she is happy to do the work that may save another child.” – Angela R.
