ON THE COVER —Wonder Women —18. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

For the past 10 years, the members of 100 Women Who Care Windsor-Essex have been changing lives in our community. Fundraising quickly and efficiently for area organizations and programs is their special super power! Who are these women and how do they make it work with their network 100% run by volunteers?

COVER LOCATION AND PHOTO DESCRIPTION: The membership of 100 Women Who Care Windsor-Essex is made up of women from all walks of life and every imaginable demographic. Many members have been involved since day one, back in February 2013. Photos of some of the members were taken at the Windsor Yacht Club meeting in May. Since only half of the entire group were able to attend in person, individual images are repeated here a few times. An additional shot of the group Co-founders — Maureen Lucas (left) and Liz Farano (also Vice President of Douglas Marketing Group) — was taken in the summer at the DMG office, 4960 Walker Road, Unit 2 in Windsor. All shots were digitally merged to create the mosaic you see on the front cover. PHOTOGRAPHER AND CREATIVE ARTWORK: Rod Denis. (RodneyLDenisPhotographer.com).

In 1997, T2B was established by Tania Sorge and Doris Lapico, who were in similar personal situations and felt the need to change the experience of cancer for patients and families while in a hospital setting. Twenty five years later, with over 20 ongoing programs, their grassroots organization remains dedicated to providing comfort to patients and their families impacted by a life-altering illness.
