CYGAN (PICK) Heather (Pick) Cygan. Local hero and 10-TV news anchor, Heather (Pick) Cygan, lost her battle to breast cancer on Friday, November 7, 2008. Heather is survived by her husband, Joe; their children, Julia 7 and Jack 4; loving and supportive relatives and many, many close friends. Heather was the shining light in every room she entered as well as in the heart of every person she met. Not only was she sweet and caring, but the energy, courage and bravery bottled up in her petite frame exceeded that of an entire varsity cheerleading squad AND football team. Fighting and cheering for children. Fighting and cheering for women. Educating the public. Making loved ones laugh. Making strangers laugh. Brightening up the life of everyone she came in contact with. These are the things for which this wonderful young woman will be remembered. Maybe her bright pink wigs too. There will be a private celebration of life for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers, Heather requested simply, "Don't wait. Give someone an unexpected gift just because you appreciate them. Take your own loved ones to a cherished community treasure or try something completely new." If you would like to make a donation in Heather's memory, please consider The Columbus Zoo, Nationwide Children's Hospital or the Stefanie Spielman Fund. A bench in Heather's honor will be dedicated by the pond upon entrance to the Columbus Zoo - a favorite place to visit with her family. Sign the online guestbook at www.dispatch.com/obituaries
