  2. University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) senior Brittney Bass Gray had just finished a week of finals during the summer 2011 semester when, out of the blue, she found herself facing an even greater challenge — breast cancer.

    The Birmingham native is one of five women featured in “The Alabama Project: The Civil Rights of Health Care,” a collection of photographs that show young women battling breast cancer. The black-and-white images are a subset of “The SCAR Project: Breast Cancer Is Not a Pink Ribbon.”

  3. Sollohub, an Anniston, Ala., police officer, was just 27 when he was shot in the line of duty while pursuing a suspect on Aug. 24, 2011. A little more than 24 hours later, Justin’s family said goodbye to him — but not before, through their grief, they helped four other families get a second chance with their loved ones through organ donation.

    Now Sollohub’s gift, his memory and his sacrifice will be celebrated at the 2013 Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 1. He is one of 72 organ donors who will be remembered with a memorial floragraph — a portrait made from flowers — sponsored by the Alabama Organ Center and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Hospital on the Donate Life float, “Journeys of the Heart.”
