Gillian Horwitz
Gillian Horwitz Gillian Horwitz has a very personal reason for supporting the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, one that is turning tragedy into triumph.
After her daughter Terry passed away from breast cancer in 2008, Gillian launched a personal campaign that not only raises funds for a cause she holds dear, but serves as a way to honour Terry's memory.
Gillian has been a dedicated member of the Community Outreach Committee on the Lois Hole Hospital for Women Campaign since 2006. Her enthusiasm is quite contagious, something that has been appreciated by all of the Community Outreach Committee members.
What started out as a simple volunteer commitment became something more personal for Gillian after she lost her daughter. "Terry was always interested in my involvement with the Lois Hole Hospital for Women," explains Gillian. "She fully supported its philosophy and she completely understood the value that a facility of this calibre would mean to women. Since Terry passed away, the Lois Hole Hospital - and the hope it represents - is more important to me than ever."
In the spring of 2009, Gillian resolved to ensure that Terry's struggle with breast cancer was not in vain. She approached the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation with the idea of organizing a walk in honour of Terry, with proceeds supporting the Lois Hole Hospital for Women. Instead, she found an existing event - CIBC's Run for the Cure - that would meet her goals.
After a passionate recruitment campaign over the summer, more than 180 people registered as members of The Terry Horwitz Team for the 2009 Run for the Cure. Gillian was delighted with the response and proudly led the team on the 5K walk through the streets of Edmonton on October 4.
For some, this would have been enough of an effort, but Gillian is only getting started. Her goal is to have a room named in Terry's honour in the Lois Hole Hospital for Women.

Lois Hole Hospital For Women - Top of Mind, 6 June 2009 [cached]
Gillian Horwitz is a volunteer on the Lois Hole Hospital for Women Community Outreach Committee who has her own reason for getting involved with this year's Run for the Cure: her own daughter, Terry, lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 37.
Gillian is a strong community supporter, and not long ago approached the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation with the wish to organize a walk/run in honour of her daughter. Rather than undertake the large and complicated task to coordinate an independent walk/run, Gillian decided to create the Terry Horwitz Fund in Support of the Lois Hole Hospital for Women for the 2009 CIBC Run for the Cure.
