1 in 8 women. That's a sobering statistic for the prevalence of a disease but that is the reality of breast cancer. Most of us will know someone with this cancer in our circle of friends and family and today the treatment and support options are improving year after year thanks to supporters, sponsors, community advocates and new research. Susan G. Komen Northern Nevada is dedicated to empowering local women and changing the game for individuals, families and our community.
Through November 15th, ten percent of all Lily of Valley Isle sales will go to support the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Reno!
