In memoriam - Patty Franchi Flaherty
Sad news from Ovations for the Cure this week as we learn that it's founder, Patty Franchi Flaherty has passed away. Patty was an amazing person who made a tremendous impact throughout her life. Stricken with the same disease that took her mother's life, Patty rose to the occasion and founded Ovations for the Cure of Ovarian Cancer, a non-profit organization that raises money for the funding of ovarian cancer research, treatment, patient care, and ultimately a cure. I admire those who stand up and decide to get things done. Patty was one of those people! To read more about Patty's fascinating life, visit her Ovations memorial page.

My favorite picture of her, taken at the Carmen Marc Valvo fashion show last May.
