Pink Football Award presented by TriHealth

The 12th annual “Pink Football Award” presented by TriHealth, the MLCF, and the Cincinnati Bengals, was awarded to an outstanding breast cancer survivor for her strength, courage and perseverance in battling the devastating disease. We were thrilled to present the award to Jamie Hoffpauir.

At the age of 33 and six months pregnant with her second child, Jamie Hoffpauir was diagnosed with an aggressive, stage 3 breast cancer.  Over the course of 12 months she went through chemotherapy, a cesarean section, a radical mastectomy, radiation, more chemotherapy, and finally bilateral reconstruction. More than anyone should have to ever tackle in a lifetime, much less a year. With little or no complaints, Jamie not only endured treatment but successfully delivered a happy healthy baby boy.

Jamie’s career was centered around the health and fitness industry, but during her diagnosis she noticed the cancer began to make her feel out of place. “I was always known as a good trainer and instructor. Then, suddenly, I was just known as the trainer who had cancer,” she shared. Jamie refused to let her diagnosis define her, fighting her illness by means of physical fitness and staying positive. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, she went straight back to exercising, training and even opened her own fitness studio and developed a line of athletic apparel suited for breast cancer survivors.

“Jamie is one of those few people you come in contact with in life that leave a lasting impression forever. Her infectious personality, exuding energy and optimism has touched so many people. Her desire to make a positive impact within the cancer circle by bridging fitness and health for survivors is very effective. She is a true ambassador on this front and is changing lives.” – Close friend, colleague and personal trainer of Jamie.

Jamie was also a founding member of the Pink Ribbon Girls and is active in other organizations, as well. We are honored to award Jamie Hoffpauir with the 2016 Pink Football award.
