For Survivors

You’ll find an incredible community of breast cancer survivors and co-survivors at the Susan G. Komen NEPA Race for the Cure®. 

We recognize a person as a survivor from the moment a breast cancer diagnosis is confirmed. Co-survivors can be family members, spouses or partners, friends, health care providers or colleagues. Anyone who is there to lend support from diagnosis through treatment and beyond is considered a co-survivor. Many different co-survivors may enter the survivor’s life over time, lending support in a variety of ways.  

On Race Day, survivors and co-survivors gather to celebrate and support one another in an atmosphere of genuine camaraderie. It is their inspiring spirit that energizes us to continue the fight to end breast cancer forever. Their fundraising efforts encourage other participants to take action and be More Than Pink ™.

Visit our  Fundraising 101 page for special ways that you can help in the fight.
