In honor of the retirement of long-time Cancer Center volunteer Karen Eckert, the Cancer Center hosted a Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on September 21, 2015.

Karen has faithfully volunteered in the Image Boutique since the new Cancer Center opened in January 2010.  She participated in all events the Image Boutique has had over the years she has served, including the “Bra-Zilla” and “Look Good Feel Better” programs.  Karen Eckert and her family have moved to Florida, where she will be enjoying an abundance of golfing!
