Carol Ferrell, Director
Carol Ferrell retired from Stater Bros. Markets in Southern California after 40 years of service, during which time she was an accounting supervisor over three different departments.
Carol and her husband Bill were Lake Havasu City summer visitors for many years along with their two children and many friends. Upon retirement in 2012, they decided to make Lake Havasu City their permanent home. Carol is an 11-year cancer survivor. Knowing she was blessed to be a survivor, she felt a desire to give back.
Carol joined the Cancer Association of Havasu in May of 2012.  She was soon elected as Chair Elect and two years later was elected Director.  In her work with the Cancer Association, Carol is responsible for restarting the Association’s wig program under the current direction of stylist, Renee Plemmons, at Hair 4 You Salon.  Renee is a two-time cancer survivor herself, and is now battling cancer for a third time. Through Carol’s initiative the Cancer Association has initiated an Oral Cancer Screening Program.  This low-cost program is very dear and near to her heart as she lost her father and a very dear friend to oral cancer. Carol is very passionate about building awareness and attendance for the Cancer Association’s Support Groups here in Lake Havasu City.
Carol joined the Havasu Community Health Foundation Board in February, 2016 to ensure the vitality of the Cancer Association of Havasu, their parent organization (HCHF) and other health-related HCHF partners so all can look forward to working together to provide valuable health-related programs and services for our local community.
