“I have enjoyed over 20 years in my career providing customer service in a variety of ways”, said Ramirez. “I have long admired the wonderful work done by the board and staff at Circle of Hope and have had the pleasure of getting to know them through their association with the Chamber. I am eager to have the opportunity to help and support those in our community with cancer and assist them in their wellness journey.”
Circle of Hope is a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization that provides financial, emotional and educational support along with over 30 supportive wellness therapies and support groups all free of charge to those diagnosed with cancer in the Santa Clarita Valley.
