Nominating a woman you know for an award is such a powerful way to appreciate and acknowledge her. It lets her know that she has been seen, and she matters. It's something she will remember and be impacted by forever.
The Woman Of Worth Awards were renamed the Tammy Moyer Woman Of Worth Awards to honour the memory of an extraordinary human. Tammy was a dear friend and the morning anchor on News1130. She was a passionate supporter of women's causes and especially WOW.
Her sudden loss to pancreatic cancer was a tragic blow to everyone, especially her (then) 7-year-old son as she was a single mom. The Awards now allow Tammy's name to live on in a way that was meaningful to her, keeping her memory and radiance alive.
Nominations CLOSED January 31

Pain to Purpose:
A meaningful conversation on cancer survival and loss … with a message of hope
We live in a world where everyone has a cancer story. You’ve either been diagnosed and are in treatment, remission or cured … or you know someone. More tragically, you have lost a loved one (or more than one). This panel will cover both ends of the spectrum, with gritty authenticity and heart. Even in the darkest challenges, there are opportunities to evolve from pain into purpose. You will be inspired by these courageous women, who are sharing from their souls so you can know there is hope and light on this journey.

My worthiness is inherent, infinite and persevering —
it is my natural state
My value is a reflection of who I AM —
and I am magnificent
And... who I am always makes a difference —
because I MATTER
I am successful —
because I come from my true power which lies within
I am empowered —
choosing from the clarity of my heart, mind and spirit
I am an empowered leader —
as I impact others from quiet acts of kindness to leading a nation
I am abundant —
as I manifest success from the core of my values and vision
I cherish my relationships —
they are part of what makes me strong
I am a Human BEing —
as my BEing is of far more significance than my DOing
I play, laugh, and bring beauty and light into the world —
I am RADIANT
At times I despair and I weep, when I feel the pain of a world that has momentarily gone mad
Yet even when I tremble through a dark night of the soul,
I renew my faith and my courage in a single heartbeat — because my spirit is indomitable
I FEEL and I CARE and I am passionately ALIVE —
with a heart as open as the universe.
I AM A WOMAN OF WORTH, AND I AM GLORIOUS!
