Power of Pink - Share your stories!

Shannon and Family Photo -color.jpeg

According to a national study, nearly 29 women will be diagnosed with cancer in the Komen Tidewater affiliate area, each week.

Help us honor those who have made an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Share your story of survival or that of someone you know. The Virginian-Pilot will select a number of your stories to include in our Power of Pink section to be published in early October. It's one way to honor those who have given so much in this fight. 

For details & to recognize a special person, click here. Hurry the deadline is August 31st.



Komen Tidewater Wish List

  • Please register for Race Here
  • Please pass on the word about Race for the Cure 2016

 


Breast Cancer Myth: 

Latina Woman 96x96I don’t have time to get a second opinion because I must begin treatment as soon as possible.

One of the most important things to do when considering breast cancer treatment options is to get a second opinion.

Most breast cancers grow slowly enough that taking the time to meet with several doctors and consider the best approaches to treatment won’t affect survival.
