“Vicki Welsh was by best friend. For 3 1/2 years I saw her face Ovarian Cancer with the same enthusiasm, openness and humor that she had throughout her life. Shortly before she passed away she asked her husband Dave and I to ‘get the word out.’ Even then her thoughts were for others. I work for the Vicki Welsh Fund to fulfill the promise I made to Vicki.”
