In accounting for her standout success, she draws extensively from the influence of her mother, who cared deeply and diligently for her nine children, three of whom were stricken by a rare neurological disease. Inspired by her example, Ms. Serfass went on to be named as Miss Hope by the American Cancer Society in 1978.
