Susan G. Komen
They walked arm-in-arm, hugging, crying and giving praise Sunday morning. Several thousand breast cancer survivors celebrated life during this year’s Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure.
The kickoff for this year’s Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure was held tonight at Stage AE on the North Shore.
Every year on Mother’s Day, thousands of breast cancer survivors along with their families and friends gather for the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. It’s a celebration of life that also raises money for breast cancer treatment and research.
The breast cancer advocacy group Susan G. Komen for the Cure has withdrawn funding to Planned Parenthood – money that had been used for breast exams and mammograms.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Medical Frontiers hosts Dr. William Poller, director of breast imaging for West Penn Allegheny Health System, and Kathy Purcell, executive director of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Pittsburgh affiliate.
While today is Mother’s Day, it’s also a day to get out and race for the cure. Earlier this week, Pittsburgh City Council declared today as “Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure Day.”
