A local radio host who lost her battle with cancer in 2016 is being honoured in the upcoming Woman of Worth Awards.
The awards have been renamed the Tammy Moyer Woman of Worth Awards, paying tribute to the single mother from Maple Ridge and morning anchor on News1130, who enjoyed the role of Master of Ceremonies at Woman of Worth events for years.
“Her sudden loss to pancreatic cancer in 2016 was a tragic blow to all who knew her, especially her 7-year-old son as she was a single mom,” read the posting on the Woman of Worth website.
“She MC’d our WOW events for years, was a dear friend, she loved the awards … and me,” said WOW founder Christine Awram.
“After she passed I changed the name to honour her memory in a way that was meaningful to her. She was such a champion of the empowerment of women, and that’s what WOW has stood for, for 15 years,” she continued.
