Supporting the Cause
“I discovered I had cancer when I was pregnant with my daughter — a nerve-wracking time full of uncertainty. Being able to climb a mountain with my daughter, now 7 years old, meant so much to me. I am honored that Simplify chose Susan G. Komen as a beneficiary.”
“PINK is very personal for me. My grandmother was an amazing and inspiring woman and never told me she was battling cancer. My last memory of her was when she brought me to college my freshman year. She passed only three months later at a way too young 66.”
“My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was a teenager. Thanks to medical advancements, and organizations like Komen, she is cancer-free. My family is blessed to have this amazing woman in our lives!”
“To a child, a mother means everything. I’m extremely proud that my work with PINK helps mothers everywhere through our support of Susan G. Komen.”
