“Ellen Cooperman Angel Award”
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – Sarah Ferguson was honored by a cancer research
center’s auxiliary for encouraging a positive lifestyle and healthy living.
The John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary’s “Ellen Cooperman Angel Award” was
presented to the Duchess of York on Friday.
“Every year the award is given to an outstanding woman who has made a significant contribution as a positive role model,” said spokeswoman Laura Stegman.
The auxiliary raises money for the John Wayne Cancer Institute, a research and
treatment center. The award and a $100,000 fellowship for breast cancer research
were created in memory of Ellen Cooperman, an early auxiliary member. – 10/99
