Each year, Susan G. Komen of Upstate New York hosts a community luncheon to honor celebrate survivors. These luncheons, held in Albany and Buffalo, also recognize the dedication of community volunteers who fearlessly support the life saving promise of Susan G. Komen – to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find cures.
