The Balance Feature: Lori van Dam on How Komen is Supporting the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Welcome to the Balance Feature!

Each month Believe in Balance features an individual or organization striving to make a difference in the lives of the communities and the people they serve.

I’m so excited for you to meet Lori van Dam.  I’ve known Lori now for quite a few years.  She is dynamic, passionate, real and a respected leader in the breast cancer space and within the community here in Eastern Massachusetts.

Komen funds research for more effective breast cancer treatments, and patient support for access to care, mammography, and patient navigation.

In our chat, Lori talks about the biggest issues facing breast cancer today and how Komen is supporting the cause. She also shares some of the cutting edge research taking place right here in Massachusetts and reveals her favorite Komen scholar!

The Komen virtual walk for a cure takes place on Saturday, 10/24. If you’re interested in participating or for more information about Komen visit Komen New England.

You can also get access to additional information and services by calling 1-877-GO-KOMEN.
