Liz Tilberis: A Tribute
Liz Tilberis bridged the worlds of high-fashion and everyday home-life seamlessly. Her effortless ability to transition between the two serves as a reminder that women touched by ovarian cancer play many roles, and live in many different worlds, but ultimately, all share the same goal – to find methods of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. This month, as we mourn the anniversary of Liz’s untimely passing, we celebrate her and those things that made her who she was.
“Liz came from one place, and that was love… She made everyone feel good.” Donna Karan
“The cancer never defeated Liz. It took her body, but she never surrendered her will or her spirit, not once… Her wonderful nature seemed to shine through everything.” Andrew Tilberis
“[Her] remarkable courage was what those of us who knew Liz will remember most about her… When others might have retreated from the spotlight, she used her platform as a vehicle to raise awareness and research dollars.” Hillary Rodham Clinton
“Liz was the snap, crackle and pop of the fashion world.” Blaine Trump
