Power of Pink - Share your stories!
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.

Komen Tidewater Wish List
Breast Cancer Myth:
I 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.
cancers grow slowly enough that taking the time to meet with several doctors
and consider the best approaches to treatment won’t affect survival.
