LuAnn Daniel’s career in Diagnostic Imaging has spanned almost three decades. She’s always had a passion for breast cancer awareness, and was inspired to take that passion to a higher level after she lost a good friend to breast cancer. Daniel founded Women Rock, a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to underinsured and underprivileged women to obtain breast imaging services. Women Rock provides support and encouragement to those already diagnosed with breast cancer to help them through treatment, recovery, and give them hope.
She is involved in all aspects of running the organization and oversees all operations, schedules speakers for the “Breast Friends” support group, and coordinates various fundraising events. She attributes her success to her passion and empathy. LuAnn particularly enjoys taking the Women Rock pink fire truck on the road, which enables her to meet amazing people, hear stories of victory and defeat, make friends, and witness time and time again a woman’s true inner strength.
LuAnn earned an Associate of Science in 1983 and is certified in radiography, mammography and computed tomography. She sits on the advisory committee of the Radiologic Technology Program at Grayson County College and holds memberships to AHRA, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, Women of Visionary Influence, and the Fraternal Order of Elks #238.
In 2011, LuAnn received the 2010 Advocacy Mentor of the Year Award from Women of Visionary Influence (an international Women’s organization), the Red River Regional Hospital Director of the Year Award, and was a KXII Twelve Who Care Nominee, as well as a previous AHRA Osborn Scholarship recipient.
She has volunteered for the American Cancer Society, and has served on the Relay for Life Committee. Daniel is excited to work with the Board of Directors with strategic planning and watch Women Rock flourish as they carry out their mission of saving the lives of women in the communities they serve through the early detection of breast cancer.
In the years to come, LuAnn looks forward to standing amongst the largest group of breast cancer survivors that her community as ever seen!
