Rep. Mike Quigley gave a proclamation on the floor of the House of Representatives today honoring longtime DJ Leslie Witt.
Witt, who passed away from Ovarian Cancer this past July, was called “an important and respected member of the Chicago community” by Rep. Quigley.
He added, “She embodied the heart of our city with her enthusiasm for radio and her strong dedication for WXRT listeners.”
Rep. Quigley called for action, saying, “as this is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, I ask that her memory not be forgotten and we fund the critical research necessary.”
All month long WXRT is selling vintage XRT shirts to raise Ovarian Cancer awareness. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance.
