Diane Nyad
Our 2018 Dr. Susan M. Love Award Winner
DIANE NYAD

Fenway Health is proud to honor renowned athlete Diana Nyad with the Dr. Susan M. Love Award. Nyad is being recognized for her contributions to women’s athletics and fitness.

Each year, the Dr. Susan M. Love Award is given to honor and celebrate a woman and/or organization that has made a significant contribution to the field of women’s health. The Love Award is given in honor of its founding recipient, Dr. Susan M. Love, a pioneer in the fields of women’s health and breast cancer. Love helped found the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center in 1992 and currently heads up the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, which is dedicated to eradicating breast cancer.

On September 2, 2013, at the age of sixty-four, Diana Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage, swimming 111 miles in fifty-three hours from Havana to Key West. In the 1970s, she became known as the world’s greatest long distance swimmer with her open-water achievements, including a record-breaking swim around Manhattan.

For the next thirty years, Nyad was a prominent sports broadcaster and journalist, filing compelling stories for National Public Radio, ABC’S Wide World of Sports, and others. She is the author of the upcoming memoir, Find a Way, and three other books, is a national fitness icon, is a talented linguist, and is one of today’s most powerful and engaging public speakers.

Diana is a brave survivor who encourages women to tell their stories of the trusted sexual predators who are so dominate in our society and who continue to victimize women every day. By sharing her own story of abuse, she inspires other women to begin the long journey of healing themselves.
