The Thriver Award
This award recognizes a local person living with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) who is working to raise awareness about MBC and/or supporting others with this diagnosis. MBC is breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other organs in the body. MBC is a stage of breast cancer – also known as Stage IV – that is treatable, but currently not curable. It causes nearly all of the more than 40,000 breast cancer deaths each year in the United States. Please nominate someone living with Metastatic Breast Cancer from our local community who is INCREASING AWARENESS about Metastatic Breast Cancer and/or providing much-needed SUPPORT to others living with Metastatic Breast Cancer. Click here to apply.
This award recognizes a person who plays a vital role in supporting someone diagnosed with breast cancer. As any person diagnosed with breast cancer knows, facing the challenges of fighting this difficult disease is not done alone. Everyone battling breast cancer has been supported by a team made up of spouses, parents, friends, and many others. We ask survivors and thrivers to nominate the individual who is/was their partner in their fight. Click here to apply.
*All nominations must be received by Sunday, April 14. Winners will be announced at the Komen Triangle Race for the Cure® on Saturday, March 4. Award winners must be present to accept the award on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at the Triangle Race for the Cure®.
