Komen Community Ambassador

The Komen Community Ambassadors are a group of breast cancer survivors who have been chosen from the 16 county Komen Chattanooga Affiliate service area to represent the FACES OF BREAST CANCER. They are advocates for the Komen Mission to find the cures and end breast cancer forever!  Representing different races, ages, communities, and even gender, they are sharing their stories to remind us all that breast cancer does not discriminate.  We all know someone, love someone, and perhaps are someone who is or will battle this disease.The Komen Community Ambassadors all know first-hand how important it is to have support, information, education, and HOPE.
