Your Real Champion for the week of April 18, 2021, was Mindy Oppenheimer!
Mindy took her degree from Penn and an MBA from UCLA and headed to Wall Street, but always found the ultimate joy was in comforting other people, especially those in mourning. When it was her turn to meet a medical challenge, it was the support of her community that made her feel loved and safe. Now she is a Chaplain for the sick and dying at a hospital.
Each week we highlight the #RealChampions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
