FBN’s Gerri Willis was honored with the Surviving with Impact award yesterday at the Susan G. Komen 2018 Impact Awards.
Willis, who survived stage three breast cancer in 2016, thanked her “Fox family” many of whom were at Wednesday’s event at Cipriani 42nd St.
“The secret about Fox News that no gossip column has ever told you? The company is unbelievably supportive of women fighting breast cancer,” said Willis. “When I was on sick leave and management called – the question was not when are you coming back to work, but what can we do to help you.”
Among the Fox Newsers in attendance: anchors Ainsley Earhardt, Sandra Smith, Martha MacCallum, Bill Hemmer and Cheryl Casone. Also, FNC and FBN CEO Suzanne Scott, FNC president and executive editor Jay Wallace, FBN president Brian Jones, FBN svp of programming Gary Schreier, and FBN vp of programming Tom Bowman.
Willis and her Team Gerri raised more than $20,000 for last year’s Susan G. Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure.
