#IamKomenATL – Susan F.
I am a breast cancer survivor. As I reflect on my journey, one thing is clear: knowledge is power in the fight against breast cancer. Ten years ago I noticed an abnormality in my right breast, and just after my 40th birthday, I went in for my first mammogram. Two weeks later my life was turned upside down, as I met with a breast surgeon to chart a course of action for how to combat my breast cancer diagnosis. Eight rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and full reconstruction surgeries filled the next year of my life. That was a decade ago, and this year I celebrated my ten-year cancer-versary!
Komen Atlanta empowers people in our community with information and resources so they, too, can detect and survive breast cancer. This October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, make a difference by donating to Komen Atlanta and Say “Yes Ma’am” to save a life.
