Judy has been an inspiration to me in my work in the cancer program at Mount Nittany Medical Center. The resources she has created for cancer survivors are incredible assets to our community. She leaves us a great legacy. Please accept my deepest sympathies - I know your grief is shared by the many people Judy has touched in her work.
