Texas resident and well-known plastic surgeon and media commentator, Dr. Jennifer Walden, has been nominated as a candidate to win the annual Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year Award. This award was created to do two things: to bring awareness to the world about blood cancers and to help end this horrible type of cancer by raising money to fund research for it.
The fundraiser is simple: deserving men and women are nominated by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and it is their job to raise as much money as they can for the society. The man and woman who raise the most are given much fanfare and are heralded for the entire year.
Dr. Walden is the first female physician from Austin to be nominated and, as someone who has spent her life focusing on her career, is a very worthy candidate to be nominated for this award. Dr. Walden was originally waitlisted at her University of choice but proved that she was worthy of attending the University when she graduated as a Salutatorian.
In 2011 Dr. Walden left the successful practice in New York that she was working for and returned to Austin in order to raise her family. Since returning to Austin not only has she become a well-known and successful plastic surgeon, she has also been featured as an expert commentator on plastic surgery on channels like Fox, ABC News, VH1 and more.
Dr. Walden is making every effort possible to help raise money for what she considers to be a very worthy cause. Fans of the cause, and of Dr. Walden, can help her to raise money by visiting her donation website.
