Susan’s Breast Friends
Susan McCormick, a 21-year breast cancer survivor and Director of Strategic Clinical Solutions at A10 Clinical Solutions, Inc., has been a true inspiration at the office. The A10 Team, registered this year as Susan’s Breast Friends, has yet again taken on the Komen Challenge for the Komen NC Triangle Race for the Cure® event on Saturday, June 11th in Raleigh, North Carolina. A10 is thrilled to walk in support of our dynamite survivor, Susan, and the NC Triangle Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in its efforts to end breast cancer.
In 2010, Komen NC Triangle began the Impact of a Promise project incorporating powerful images of seven local breast cancer survivors, including Susan, and documented their stories to empower them and to inspire others. Last year, Curtis Brown Photography joined forces with NC Komen Race for the Cure® to promote a gallery show with a very powerful collection of images to capture the true emotions of breast cancer survivors.
This year, seven survivors will be telling their stories in person at a private reception this Friday in Raleigh and Susan has been invited as a past participant to listen to their stories.
Susan told us, “I’m so excited to have my A10 family supporting me again this year for the race, which this is the 15th anniversary of the NC Triangle Race, and that I have had the honor of volunteering with Komen in North Carolina for five years now. It is wonderful to see how the affiliate has grown and the increasing number of women’s lives that have been saved with the money that’s raised through this event.”
There is no doubt that many of us have been affected by breast cancer in the women and men we love most. With roughly 1.3 million people being diagnosed annually, A10 continues to fight for a cure. Remember, one person can make a difference and you can be a part of this worthwhile effort! It is up to you, survivors and co-survivors, to ensure a cure is found.
