MCSM contest blog imageWith Mother’s Day fast approaching, we would like to honor a courageous survivor who also happens to be a mom.  For the third year, Komen Columbus is kicking off our “Most Courageous Survivor Mom Contest” for anyone who has survived or is currently battling breast cancer. Do you know a special woman who fits this bill? Has she been an inspiration to you and deserves a little pampering?

Submit a nomination for the “Most Courageous Mom Survivor” award.  Komen Columbus – along with Aveda, Easton Town Center and Stanley Steemer– want to honor this amazing woman!  Here’s what one lucky lady will win:
