Faces of a Warrior | 2016

Inspired, supported, and encouraged are not words normally associated with breast cancer. However, to shine light on such a difficult diagnosis and journey, Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale launched the Faces of a Warrior Mentorship Program. Through this initiative, men and women are invited to share their story; from their breast cancer diagnosis to how they have thrived after it. Stories will be shared via our website, social media, eblasts, signage at event(s), as well as additional marketing pieces throughout the year.
