Stefanie Spielman   Heather Pick

In early 1998, while performing a breast self-exam, Stefanie Spielman felt a lump. She immediately had it examined by her physician and was told...at age 30...that she had breast cancer.

Stefanie has now survived three bouts with breast cancer. She believes that education is the best weapon against this disease, and that research is the key to eliminating it. That’s why she and her husband, former OSU football star and All-Pro NFL linebacker Chris Spielman, established the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at The James. They have raised more than $4 million to be dedicated to breast cancer research at the Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University.

Stepanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.


Heather Pick serves as the weekday morning anchor for 10TV Eyewitness News. She became a member of the 10TV family in October 2002 and joins veteran anchor Chuck Strickler and meteorologist Chuck Gurney for morning newscasts.

Heather is a native of Platteville, Wisconsin. She previously worked 10 years as a reporter-anchorwoman at WREX in Rockford, Illinois, where she was honored by the Illinois Associated Press for a documentary on breast-cancer survivors. At age 36, Heather is battling cancer a second time.
