One in Eight? I am a "one in eight" woman - and I have benefited from the advances made in the fight. I have also had the honor of knowing women who have not been so fortunate.
What am I doing? After my diagnosis in 1999, I started volunteering with the Affiliate. I have been inspired by the friends I have met through my involvement and I know the differences we have made in the fight against breast cancer.
What does Komen do? For over 30 years, Komen has played a critical role in every major advancement in the fight against breast cancer. I believe in its vision of a "World without Breast Cancer" and will continue to support Komen’s breast cancer research and services to the underserved in my community.
That’s why I support the Susan G. Komen San Francisco Bay Area. I hope you will join me. Thank you.
