Mary Jo's Angels

nominate an angelThe 6th annual Mary Jo's Angels event will be held on November 9th at the Manor House in Mason. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and donors, last  year's luncheon raised nearly $400,000 to benefit clinical research at the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care on the Bethesda North Hospital campus. 

Mary Jo’s Angels honors those who have improved the quality of life for cancer survivors. The event was created to remember the spirit of grace and compassion of Mary Jo Cropper, who succumbed to breast cancer in 2011. Her sensitivity to people dealing with cancer was remarkable, and she left an indelible mark on all those whose lives she touched.

The following honorees were recognized at the 2015 Mary Jo's Angels event for their selfless and compassionate hearts: Anne Abate, Dr. Kimberly Koss, Kathy Leurck & Zand Walters-Karen Wellington Foundation, Jon & Hope Jamison & Cheryl Saylor-Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope and Harold M. Thomas.
