Komen St. Louis is fortunate to work with so many dedicated health care professionals who deliver quality breast health and breast cancer services to individuals in our community.

At our Power of a Promise luncheon, we presented our 2014 Health Professional of the Year Award to one such dedicated person, Theresa Taylor.

Theresa is Outreach Coordinator at the Breast HealthCare Center at Missouri Baptist Medical Center.

Theresa goes the extra mile to help as many women as she can make the connection to lifesaving breast health and breast cancer services. She does this figuratively and literally – driving many miles to make sure women in rural areas get the mammograms they need.

Theresa is a gentle voice of authority when speaking with a woman who is worried about “the lump” and has no insurance.

She is a two-time breast cancer survivor herself, the mother of two sons, and is training for her 4th Komen 3-Day walk event. Clearly, she has a personal commitment to the cause.

Congratulations and thank you, Theresa!
