Cati Diamond StoneNearly six years ago, at the age of 35, I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.  My cancer was aggressive, and so was my treatment: chemotherapy, radiation, a mastectomy and numerous reconstruction surgeries. But one treatment ultimately saved my life: a medication called Herceptin, which was made by possible by funding from Susan G. Komen.  Not very long ago, women with my diagnosis generally did not survive. But I did, thanks to Komen and its many supporters. But did you know that, in our 25+ years of service, Komen Atlanta has also enabled more than one million Metro Atlantans to access life-saving breast health education and screenings, ensuring the survivorship of so many? Help run breast cancer out of town and join us at this year’s Race for the Cure on May 7th at Lenox Square.  Race for the Cure is Komen Atlanta's biggest event, aiming to convene 10,000 people and raise more than $1.2 million to support its mission to enable our community to detect and survive breast cancer by facilitating access to quality care, providing education and supporting research.  So sign up, lace up, and show up to help make an impact in the fight against breast cancer.  Register today at komenatlanta.org/race and use the code “teamB98.5” for a 10% discount on all adult 5k and 1-mile registrations.  (Not valid on Kids for the Cure or Sleep in for the Cure registrations)Susan FulginitiI am a breast cancer survivor.  As I reflect on my journey, one thing is clear:  knowledge is power in the fight against breast cancer.  Eleven years ago I noticed an abnormality in my right breast, and just after my 40th birthday, I went in for my first mammogram.  Two weeks later my life was turned upside down, as I met with a breast surgeon to chart a course of action for how to combat my breast cancer diagnosis.  Eight rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and full reconstruction surgeries filled the next year of my life.  That was over a decade ago, and this year I will celebrate my eleven-year cancer-versary!  But, the following advice still remains incredibly important to my family and me:  Understand your risk.  Know your normal.  Get screened.  Ask questions.  Komen Atlanta empowers people in our community with information and resources so they, too, can detect and survive breast cancer.  Help run breast cancer out of town and join us at this year’s Race for the Cure on May 7th at Lenox Square.  Race for the Cure is Komen Atlanta's biggest event, aiming to convene 10,000 people and raise more than $1.2 million to support its mission to enable our community to detect and survive breast cancer by facilitating access to quality care, providing education and supporting research.  So sign up, lace up, and show up to help make an impact in the fight against breast cancer.  Register today at komenatlanta.org/race and use the code “teamB98.5” for a 10% discount on all adult 5k and 1-mile registrations.  (Not valid on Kids for the Cure or Sleep in for the Cure registrations)Taurus DotsonWhen I was 42 years old, my first, routine mammogram led to a biopsy, which later revealed a breast cancer diagnosis.  My son was 2 years old when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I knew right away that I would fight as hard as I could to be here for him.    After discussing my options with doctors and family, I settled on the course for my treatment: a mastectomy along with a tram procedure, followed by reconstructive surgeries.  My outlook on life has been transformed by breast cancer, and my needs have changed too.  As a breast cancer survivor, I know first-hand how important it is to empower yourself with the knowledge and tools to lead a healthy life and the importance of organizations like Komen Atlanta.  I was referred to TurningPoint for physical therapy that changed my whole world.  TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation is a Komen Atlanta grant recipient, so much of that organization’s work - and the work of so many others in Metro Atlanta - is made possible by Komen Atlanta and its many supporters.  Help run breast cancer out of town and join us at this year’s Race for the Cure on May 7th at Lenox Square.  Race for the Cure is Komen Atlanta's biggest event, aiming to convene 10,000 people and raise more than $1.2 million to support its mission to enable our community to detect and survive breast cancer by facilitating access to quality care, providing education and supporting research.  So sign up, lace up, and show up to help make an impact in the fight against breast cancer.  Register today at komenatlanta.org/race and use the code “teamB98.5” for a 10% discount on all adult 5k and 1-mile registrations.  (Not valid on Kids for the Cure or Sleep in for the Cure registrations)Lila HertzWhen I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 1998, I was preparing to send my daughter to college and training for a marathon.  I could not let the diagnosis slow me down.  Through early detection, excellent medical care and healthy life choices, I was able to make a full recovery.  I had a lumpectomy and radiation, and it was exercise that gave me the energy to keep going. Exercise became an emotional and physical outlet for me, and an integral part of my journey.  I completed the marathon and beat breast cancer!But in Metro Atlanta, the race is not over.  Women in Metro Atlanta have higher breast cancer mortality and late-stage diagnosis rates than other cities in Georgia. And Georgia has higher rates than the United States as a whole.  We must not stop until everyone in Metro Atlanta has access to lifesaving breast cancer services and treatments.Donations to Komen Atlanta save lives.  75 percent of funds raised stay in Metro Atlanta to provide breast health services for people who might not otherwise be able to afford them, and the remaining 25 percent of funds raised support national research efforts to find cures for breast cancer.  Help run breast cancer out of town and join us at this year’s Race for the Cure on May 7th at Lenox Square.  Race for the Cure is Komen Atlanta's biggest event, aiming to convene 10,000 people and raise more than $1.2 million to support its mission to enable our community to detect and survive breast cancer by facilitating access to quality care, providing education and supporting research.  So sign up, lace up, and show up to help make an impact in the fight against breast cancer.  Register today at komenatlanta.org/race and use the code “teamB98.5” for a 10% discount on all adult 5k and 1-mile registrations.  (Not valid on Kids for the Cure or Sleep in for the Cure registrations)
