Their mission: Making a difference

Two women. Two experiences with cancer. One determination to have an impact.

Ester Armstrong and Suzanne Demas came to their commitments to fight cancer from different routes, but they are united in their passion to give something back to a world which they feel has given them abundant blessings.

Towards that end, the duo are co-chairs of the Regional Development Leaders, the grass roots, community-based arm of the cancer center's development efforts. These energetic volunteers do most of the hands-on fundraising, event planning, and outreach to other volunteers in northern and central California.

The group was organized in 1998 and works in collaboration with the staff of the UC Davis Medical Center Health Sciences Advancement office and the Cancer Center Executive Board of Advisors, a group of business and community leaders who guide, advise and review the cancer program.
