The caregiver must personify the values of unconditional caring, continued perserverance, positivity and humor, which were values that Cathy, a P.A., lived by until her death in 2017. The award plaque reads: “I choose to BELIEVE that every new day is a new start. That every challenge is an opportunity to grow. That every failure is a comeback story about to be written. That sometimes people may find their destiny on the road they took to avoid it. That big doors swing on little hinges. That hope doesn’t take a day off unless we give it one. Love Big, Remember the Ones God Never Forgets.”
