The Stevie Patrick Legacy of Love Award was created to honor a special caregiver, medical professional or supporter. The Legacy of Love award is easily defined by actions of integrity, encouragement, determination, and serving others, especially those in need. This deserving person must be a leader each day and also have the courage to smile in the midst of adversity.

At each 5K event, Head for the Cure will award one recipient of the Legacy of Love Award during our program after the race.  Nominations will be reviewed by the Head for the Cure Team prior to the event. Nominations must be made by the Wednesday prior to the 5K event.


About Stevie Patrick:

The Legacy of Love Award was created in honor of Stevie Patrick, a Head for the Cure - North Texas founder and participant. In May of 2010, at the age of 28, Stevie was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Throughout her life, Stevie was known to her friends and family as an encourager and a leader. She consistently went out of her way to serve others and loved giving everyone she met one of her famous hugs.

Stevie always took the high road and walked through each day with great integrity and a big smile on her face. Anyone who got the opportunity to interact with Stevie knew that she was thoughtful, encouraging, genuine, supportive and a great listener. These attributes didn't change during her incredibly challenging three-and-a-half-year battle with brain cancer, as she never stopped thinking about others and offering her help.

Stevie Patrick lost her battle with brain cancer on September 26, 2013 at the young age of 31.  She left behind her sweet husband, Damen, her darling son, Ryder, as well as her parents, two sisters, one brother, and countless friends and extended family.  Each day that goes by she is missed more and more by her family and friends, but her legacy remains as strong as ever.  How fortunate so many were to know someone as wonderful, compassionate, and loving as Stevie.
