The Conference Advisory Committee designed the agenda to provide conference participants with an opportunity to:
(1) Learn about scientific breakthroughs and emerging treatment options
(2) Discover different ways to improve quality of life on a daily basis
(3) Gain support and build community
The conference is geared towards people living with metastatic breast cancer, their caregivers, and the navigators who help them, but is open to breast cancer patients of all stages.
Sandi Spivey has been involved in many local and national breast cancer organizations since her stage II diagnosis in 1995 at age 42. Three years later, after being diagnosed with metastatic stage IV breast cancer in her bones, she began her quest to learn more about the science of breast cancer so she could influence research priorities. Sandi has participated side by side with scientists and oncologists on over two dozen peer review panels for breast cancer research projects. She is a member of both the Komen Advocates in Science Steering and Metastatic Breast Cancer Advisory Committees, and is also a member of UC Irvine’s Breast Disease Orientation Team.

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.
Thank you to our 2020 Sponsors
