ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- As a breast cancer survivor herself, Cyndie Kahn has turned personal challenges into a passion for others on the same uncertain path.

Cyndie is one of our 10 Who Make a Difference recipients. She serves as treasurer on the board of directors for Join the Journey, and is also a program director for its breast cancer support group at Hope Lodge. Cyndie does the role with enthusiasm, passion and a cheerful heart, clocking in approximately 20 volunteer hours a week. 

"I think people who inspire me the most are all the women I meet through all this," said Kahn. "I have met so many people whose paths I would never have crossed."

Congratulations Cyndie Kahn for being one of our KTTC/United Way of Olmsted County 10 Who Make a Difference award recipients who will be honored next Wednesday at 1 p.m. at Soldiers Field as part of Rochesterfest.
