A local organization is looking to honor breast cancer patients and survivors.

If you know a woman with breast cancer who has demonstrated bravery during the obstacles in her life, ‘I Have Wings' wants to meet her.

The group, which is a non-profit advocating for breast cancer research and education, is taking nominations for the WINGS award. I Have Wings says the award will recognize breast cancer patients and survivors of exceptional strength.

“How has the nominee exemplified courage and determination through their cancer journey?” is one criteria that the non-profit asks nominators to consider.

Award nominations will be accepted through Feb. 7. Nominees will be announced in March and the winner named at the Spring Bling luncheon, the group's largest fundraiser, on April 18. Money raised at the Spring Bling goes towards financial and emotional assistance for Tri-State families affected by breast cancer.
