COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Sunday, September 27th, Susan G. Komen hosts the virtual 'More than Pink Walk' to fight breast cancer. KRDO NewsChannel 13's Heather Skold will emcee the opening ceremony, which can be viewed here.

Through events like the Komen Colorado MORE THAN PINK WALK™ in Denver and the inaugural MORE THAN PINK Walk at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Komen Colorado has invested over $44 million in community breast health programs throughout Colorado and has contributed to the more than $988 million invested globally in research.

Susan G. Komen's mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

On the event day, participants will hear stories online from survivors and those living with breast cancer, to learn about the impact of Komen's research discoveries, public policy advocacy and direct patient support services, and to celebrate your fundraising success.

Particpants are encouraged to set out on the sidewalks of their own neighborhoods to earn a Virtual Finisher Medal by walking 6,000 steps for the commitment to end breast cancer.

  1. Drug research, funded by this walk and other sources allowed the creation of a new drug that was just released this year. This drug has every chance of extending my life as recently they found 2 tumors in my brain.
    Please support this-you may keep someone’s wife and mom around a while longer.
    thanks

        1. From what I’ve read, it’s supposed to work well. Although as I’ve said before, it’s not one of my areas of expertise. But that doesn’t mean I can’t wish you good luck!

    1. FCN2.0, I hope this medication does work for everyone.

      For far too long, Big Pharma has allowed humanity to only receive radical treatments and medications for treating the symptoms, not curing the illness. It would be a step in the right direction if Big Pharma would start trying to cure cancer, not just treat Cancer’s symptoms. I’d just like to see the corporation move away from having their profit margins be the deciding factor of creating and testing medications. I would rather see Big Pharma actually put their patients needs ahead of their profit margin, for the betterment of humankind.

  2. Thank you for your kindest words.I am banking on this.If I die, my small family will become homeless shortly.That’s mu greatest fear.We live on the edge already,this is such a nightmare of scans meds infusion every 3 weeks, being profiled by the hospital and treated differently all this time,,just thank you for your kind words, I really don’t have anyone in my life but my son and disabled husband and…yous guys a lot of time. thank you

    1. Just because we’ve never met face to face doesn’t mean we can’t care. After spending a good part of my life trying to help families going through traumatic experiences, I can empathize with part of what you’re going through, and wish you and your family well.
