Jeanne Wokurka was nominated by Franciscan Health Foundation in Olympia Fields and sponsored by VITAS Healthcare to receive the 2019 Courage Award! Award given at their "Swinging for Better Health" 2019 Franciscan Health Classic.

It is with great respect and pleasure that we recognize Jeanne Wokurka as the 2019 Courage Award Winner." - VITAS Healthcare
