Vanessa Williams is quickly making her name among daytime viewers with her role as Dr. Valerie Grant on 'Days of Our Lives'. And, while that has been a great achievement, she had the distinct pleasure of being honored among several others for their contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS over the weekend.
On September 16, 2017 Willimas, Taraji P. Henson (Cookie, EMPIRE), Laverne Cos, Gina Brown, Alfre Woodard and Gina Belafonte were the honorees at the 16th Annual Heroes in the Struggle Awards Presentation & Reception held at the Darryl F. Zanuck Theatre at 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles.
Williams is one of those women who is committed to seeing the HIV/AIDS epidemic to its end and hence she received an award as an individual who over time have made a heroic contribution or gone the extra mile in the fight against the virus/disease. A well deserved honor, congrats Vanessa!
