Joining us this week from Komen Puget Sound are Executive Director David Richart and volunteer and two time cancer survivor Lynda Weatherby.
The first weekend each June brings about the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure, the largest annual fundraiser for Komen Puget Sound. Sunday, June 5th, over 6000 runners, walkers and even dogs are expected to converge on the Seattle Center to raise funds for research and patient programs. 75% of the funds raised stay local, and David and Lynda discuss the ways cancer patients are helped through these various programs.
The conversation also covers the advances and potential breakthroughs in research with the goal to finally eradicate breast cancer.
Their website is a wealthy resource for breast cancer questions as well as the place to register and sign up for the Race For The Cure, support a team, or volunteer to support the race.
