Life-changing. That sums up the recipients of our 11th annual Classic Woman Awards. Each was confronted with someone else’s need, and each decided to commit a huge piece of her own life to fill it. Meet these incredible women who are giving it their all—hope to cancer patients, meaningful employment opportunities to people with disabilities, and a chance at a better future to kids in their neighborhood and on the other side of the world.
