In Memory of Kathy Rice
 1956 - 2008

     Kathy was born and raised in Greenville, SC. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and fought the disease for seven years. During those years, she was a community leader in the fight against breast cancer. She co-chaired the Uplift program which provides education and support to those who are currently battling breast cancer and also empowers survivors to continue their fight. She also worked with the SC Cancer Alliance and the Department of Defense Breast Cancer research program.
She is survived by her husband and three children. Our prayer is that we will keep her service alive by doing what she did best - helping others.

In Honor of Doris Vinskus

     Born and raised in Greenville, SC, Doris has been married for over 60 years. She has three children and four grandchildren. To say the least, Doris is a fighter. She is a two-time breast cancer survivor, and is currently in remission. She actively supports The Rice Vinskus Scholarship and breast cancer research. She is an inspiration to her family and friends.

These two women are incredible examples of strength, hope, and courage. With the Rice Vinskus Scholarship, we hope to honor them and carry on the tradition of helping those who have been affected by this terrible disease.
