Powerfully Pink 2019


Powerfully Pink celebrates the work the Susan G. Komen Michigan does in the community and highlights our sponsors, donors, and grantees that make this impactful work possible. It also honors our survivors, those living with metastatic breast cancer, and our breast cancer advocates. The event also focuses on different educational topics that have made an impact on the lives of those we serve, with an emphasis on survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer. This year, we will be focusing on the topic of epigenetics in relation to breast cancer and breast cancer research. The program will include lunch, a keynote speaker presentation from an expert in the epigenetics field, and a Q and A with individuals who work in the area of epigenetics.


Join us on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM to support Komen

Michigan’s mission and recognize those who are integral in the fight against breast cancer.
