Annual Survivors Luncheon

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.

The 2018 Northeastern New York Luncheon was held in April of 2018. The 2018 Western New York Survivors Luncheon and Award Presentation was held Saturday, October 6 at the Buffalo Convention Center. 

Thank you to all survivors, sponsors, committee members, volunteers and attendees for making this year another very special and memorable celebration!! Please check back soon for a 2019 date.
