The American Cancer Society recently honored Envision Founder Kham Inthirath with a Sandra C. Labaree Volunteer Values Award for the New England Division of the American Cancer Society. The award is the most honored accolade by the Society in New England, and it recognizes Inthirath’s remarkable accomplishments in support of its mission to celebrate lives, to save lives and to lead the fight for a world without cancer.
As our agency’s founder, Inthirath donated our services to produce compelling videos to illustrate the Boston Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Worcester events in 2016 as well as the Real Men Wear Pink of Worcester, MA Reveal Party in the same year.
Below is our video for “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”:
“Kham never says no to ideas and is always willing to listen and help where he can,” said Nicola Deary, community development manager, American Cancer Society. “He is compassionate, generous and creative. He inspires me to do more and to be better at it. He is very much a leader and serves as a business counselor for the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce. He is a powerful advocate and creative force in the fight to end cancer and for the making Strides Against Breast Cancer events.”
The Sandra C. Labaree Volunteer Values Award is named in honor of the late Sandra C. Labaree, a long-time American Cancer Society volunteer from Maine. Despite her death from breast cancer in 2000, Labaree’s spirit and values live on through this award. Each year, the New England Division Board of Directors selects the most inspired and passionate individuals to receive this prestigious honor whose service best exemplifies the Society’s organizational values of mission, stewardship, diversity, data-driven, and respect.
