Mickey Whiting Award
The Day of Caring Honors the Mickey Whiting Award Winners Throughout the Years
Mickey Whiting brought the Day of Caring for Breast Cancer Awareness event to South Florida in 2001, and was instrumental in providing an amazing day of education, encouragement and empowerment for anyone concerned about breast cancer. In 2002, to honor her and recognize those who, like her, dedicate their time, skills, and talents to enrich the lives of breast cancer survivors and promote breast cancer awareness, this special award was created.
It is our pleasure to announce the recipient of the 2019 Mickey Whiting award: Debbie Setuain.
She grew up in a very small family that had a very large medical history of cancer. A year after she was diagnosed in 2010, with a triple negative breast cancer diagnosis, Debbie began her mission to raise awareness about genetic counseling and testing so others could have choices to reduce their risk of breast cancer.
