Nominations Open for ‘ Most Courageous Survivor Mom’ 2014!

A breast cancer survivor once shared with us that raising children while undergoing treatment is like trying to catch a tornado in a box with your eyes closed. It can be messy, unpredictable, heartbreaking and comedic all at the same time.

To honor those moms who somehow manage to do it all, Komen Columbus is proud to announce our Fourth Annual Most Courageous Survivor Mom contest. We would like to honor one survivor mom who is currently battling or recently completed treatment for breast cancer with a day of pampering!
