Who is your health hero?

Each year, WebMD the Magazine honors four Americans who have an extraordinary, true-life

health story to tell. Past winners faced a serious health challenge, then gave back to others

in an inspiring way. Do you know someone like this?

Who is a candidate? Patients, doctors, nurses, and family members who met a medical diagnosis or condition with courage, underwent or gave treatment, and then helped others in similar situations will be given top consideration.

To make a nomination, write up a brief summary of his or her true story and submit to us no later than Friday, August 14, 2009.

Read about our past Health Heroes winners make a nomination.

We look forward to reading about your candidates!
