For 20 years, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has hosted an event in Phoenix to raise money to fight breast cancer (www.komenphoenix.org). Come visit the Mayo Clinic booth Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Komen Race for the Cure event in downtown Phoenix.

Members of Mayo Clinic's Breast Clinic, physicians, cancer educators and clinical trials staff will be on hand to answer your questions and cheer you on as you walk/run to raise awareness for breast cancer. We look forward to these events every year. It gives us a chance to show our passion and support for our patients and community.
Events such as these help provide a sense of doing something, moving forward with a real connection to others who have the same desire and drive to make a difference. We are all touched by cancer in some way during our lives — that's why it's so important to talk, run, walk and be inspired, showing support in every way possible.
Follow me on Twitter at @SherylNess1. Join the discussion at #livingwithcancer.

What planet do those people who are unaware of breast cancer live on? Pluto? Raising awareness, showing support will never equate to finding a cure.
Komen is been racing for how long? For the first time is acknowledging stage IV - probably because the lost of income for the fiasco in February is forcing them to look for untapped resources - all those living with stage IV. No cure for this group!
