2015 Youth Advocacy Award Recipient
Angel with a message for the world
Marienette is the inspiration behind the Youth Advocacy Award which is presented for the first time this year.
She was a 22 year old Berea College Chemistry graduate who succumbed eight months after diagnosis with a rare type of ovarian cancer, Sertol-Leydig. Before her untimely death in May 2015, Marienette had become a powerful voice of her generation, joining the Patcha Foundation in educating youth about cancer and advocating screening and early detection.
She had also enrolled in the Miss Africa USA pageant with hopes of using the platform to spread cancer awareness across all ethnic groups, particularly African immigrants.
Marienette wanted to be part of the cancer disease solution. Award given posthumously and received by her mother, Josephine Nubea.Angel with a message for the world
