Have you had your annual Mammogram? As the folks from Susan G. Komen remind us, breast cancer doesn't only happen in October.
I had the opportunity to speak with Komen CEO, Dr. Judith Salerno. Listen in as she updates us on the research that Komen is funding to find a cure for breast cancer.
Want to help the cause? Join me and Jeff Martin on Sunday, May 4th, for a fun bowling event to benefit Susan G. Komen. Here's info about Pinko de Mayo.
You can also support Komen if you're going to either of Katy Perry's concert in July - July 2nd at the BB&T Center or July 3rd at the American Airlines Arena. Katy has designated Komen as one of three charities that will benefit from purchases of special tickets. More info here.
