Linda Roundtree-Weiser, Idaho
Linda was born and raised in Weiser, and is the co-founder of Angel Wings Network, Inc. Her breast cancer diagnosis in 2006 opened her eyes and heart to others she met going through cancer alone. "It was alarming and heartbreaking to meet so many people who didn't have a support network or family to help them get through cancer. I had such wonderful family and friends helping me along the way, it was difficult to imagine how others could make it through cancer without a mentor or emotional or financial support".
During the first year of her treatment, the idea to form a cancer support network was set into motion. A name was chosen and monthly meetings were held at her business location. Word traveled quickly throughout the local area of a place where people with cancer could go to find help. Small fundraising events were held, and new patient services programs were put in place to help cancer patients and their families. Angel Wings Network, moved to a new location after Linda sold her business in 2014. The Fall of 2013, Linda started an outreach program with Saint Alphonsus Hospital in Ontario Cancer Treatment Center. Mentoring Patients and Families in their cancer journey process.
