Meals on Wheels San Antonio provides services through two programs focused on nourishing lives, enabling independence, and caring for the oldest residents in the community: Meals on Wheels and Grace Place Alzheimer’s Activity Centers. Hundreds of dedicated volunteers travel across the city to deliver not only the hot meal but to also provide daily safety checks and opportunities for socialization. Grace Place Alzheimer’s Activity Centers provide services to seniors with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases. Respite, on-going education, and support are provided to caregivers.

As the leading source of free blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals, LLS helps patients navigate their cancer treatment and ensures they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care.
Nominated in honor of: Katie’s Dad, who is a lymphoma survivor. He was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma 7 years ago, and we are happy to say he has been in remission for the past 6 years!
