Nadine Whitlock Hayes left her earthly life in 2014, after
being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. She lived an amazing life as a single mother raising 9 children after her husband died from Hodgkin's disease. One daughter preceded her in death, also from breast cancer, and a son died from pancreatic cancer subsequent to her death. Her other 7 children 18 grandchildren,
19 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins cherish memories of her nurturing and are grateful for the life lessons she taught of strength, service and giving. One of her grandsons, William T. McClure, Jr., has established the Nadine Whitlock Hayes Legacy Fund to honor her by helping families who experience financial burdens as a result of breast cancer. He has chosen to partner with Pink-4-Ever Ending Disparities to manage the fund and to distribute donations from the Nadine Whitlock Hayes Legacy Fund to eligible patients, survivors and their families. Donations to this fund are used exclusively to help families with the cost of recommended genetic counseling and testing for breast cancer and to provide financial assistance to patients and survivors to help ease financial burdens caused
by their diagnosis and treatment.
