HAMPDEN, Maine — Jenifer Lloyd of Hampden was named 2013 Pink Power Mom in the program’s seventh annual contest.
The Pink Power Mom program chooses recipients for persevering through their battles with breast cancer and for their continuous inspiration to their family, friends and other survivors. This year’s submissions hit milestones from new states and demographics from across the nation.
Lloyd was selected because of her compassionate outreach to newly diagnosed cancer patients in Maine.
Lloyd was nominated for this award by her daughter, who calls her mother “Hero. Champion. Powerhouse. Advocate.” During her own fight with breast cancer, Lloyd lent support and guidance to her fellow chemotherapy patients. Seeing the need for assistance growing in the community, she embarked a fundraising profession.
Lloyd works as a project manager for Eastern Maine Medical Center Foundation, specifically with EMMC Champion the Cure Challenge, an event that has raised more than $1 million for local cancer research since 2010.
Lloyd has become a well-known advocate for cancer patients throughout central, eastern, and northern Maine.
Lloyd will be honored with all of the 2013 Pink Power Moms during the Pink & Powerful weekend celebration in Atlanta, hosted by Kids II, in February 2014. For more information, visit pinkpowermom.org.
