Be a 2015 Local Face of Breast Cancer
The Faces of Breast Cancer is a program within Komen Northwest NC wherein survivors, co-survivors or pre-vivors from each county within our service area apply and are chosen to represent Komen Northwest NC. They are true Ambassadors of the Komen Mission. This program strives to show that breast cancer is not a nameless, faceless disease – but it strikes those that we work and play with each day; but through hope and support, it can be overcome. The Faces share their personal stories and partner with various agencies and organizations throughout their counties to raise awareness of breast health facts and the availability of Komen grants. The Faces are trained on current breast health trends, treatments and research. They become knowledgeable on our history, programs and outreach. During the Race for the Cure, the Faces are captains for an all-county team and encourage participation and fundraising within their counties. They participate in the Face marketing campaign, including being pictured in Komen materials. The application can be found here and is due October 11, 2014 by 5:00 pm EST.
