    A message about Coronavirus/COVID-19 from Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta

    Komen Atlanta continues to monitor news and updates surrounding COVID-19 from the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    In light of the CDC recommendations, the date for the Greater Atlanta Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference originally scheduled for May 16 has been rescheduled to August 22. Safety is always Komen Atlanta’s number one priority, especially as it concerns our community of those living with metastatic breast cancer, those recently diagnosed and those currently going through treatment.

    Our hearts go out to everyone who is negatively impacted during this time of turmoil, but know that we are full of gratitude for our loyal supporters. We will never give up our fight to end breast cancer forever. We look forward to seeing you in August.
