Pacific Coast Region proudly announces the first presentation of the Gene Galindo Memorial Award. This fund was established in August 2006 to pay tribute to an individual who was dedicated to improving the life of individuals with ostomies. He gave unselfishly of himself to clients whenever there was a need. The fund will help to provide financial support to qualified individuals, to promote those endeavors that are noted as worthy to continue his dream to educate, assist, support and promote a better quality of life for individuals with ostomies.  The scholarship Committee selected the following winners who each received $400.00 in May 2012:
