Patricia Ann Champion - February 11, 1945 - March 31, 2016
First Participant in the GlycoScience Institute Memorial Scholarship Fund
Patricia was an extraordinarily committed Christian lady, wife, mother and grandmother. Her husband, HL Champion, exclaimed that they were HAPPILY married for 50 years, 7 months, and 4 days. She invested many years in the field of medical coding and served as Past-President of Professional Coders of Nashville, Tennessee.
Patricia was an Executive Assistant to her husband at The Endowment for Medical Research in Houston and had begun preparing the Medical Evaluation Forms returned from our Pilot Surveys for an Investigative Review Board (IRB) in the areas of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Diabetes, Cancer and other health challenges. During the process, just prior to her fatal heart attack, she remarked, “I cannot believe people are receiving such health improvements in our Pilot Surveys.”
She was a valuable member of the Team to start the GlycoScience Institute and believed strongly in the mission to educate the world about Glycoscience.
Her experience exceeded simple observation. She suffered from Auto Immune Disease since childhood. Her first heart attack was forty years ago. She and her husband applied the technology of Glycoscience which extended her quality of life for thirteen years.
