Wabash Valley Oncology Nursing Society Announces Cancer Survivor of the Year

Since 1993 Wabash Valley ONS has given the cancer survivor of the year award. The award is given to a cancer survivor who sees a need and meets it, gives back to the community through volunteerism or personal development and is a helpful mentor for other cancer patients. This year the recipient was chosen because she has worked as a personal trainer for oncology patients, counseled those with new diagnoses in many places including Indianapolis Wellness Community, and raised money for cancer research, given multiple speeches to groups emphasizing the need for testing and cancer prevention among many other things.

Survivor of the Year: Paula Eve Davis is a breast cancer survivor diagnosed in 2005 who has undergone surgery and chemotherapy while still maintaining her Fit for Life Personal Training Studio and Cattails to roses by Eve (florist) and raising her family.
