“It is inspiring to see how hard health care professionals work to bring potentially life-saving screenings and treatments to the people they serve, and a privilege to be part of this remarkable effort”, said Komen Houston volunteer Bonner Cutting.
In her four years as a Komen Houston Volunteer, Bonner’s passion has always been clear. Bonner serves as the Grants Committee Chair and serves on the Medical Advisory Council Adjunct Committee. She frequently represents Komen Houston at site visits to Komen funded partners. “The Komen organization funds mammograms and screenings for underserved women, and many lives are saved because of the tireless efforts of Komen, said Bonner.”
“Komen Houston is so grateful for the passion and leadership Bonner brings to everything she does with Komen,” said Ginny Kirklin, Mission Director at Susan G. Komen Houston. “She always shares new discoveries in breast cancer research and gets everyone excited how we can advance research through our work.”
Bonner is a six-year survivor, and wants to help other women who are going through diagnosis and treatment. “My breast cancer was found on a mammogram”, said Bonner. “The tumor could not even be felt, so without the mammogram, it would not have been diagnosed at an early stage- I believe that this mammogram saved my life”. The Komen organization funds mammograms and screenings for underserved women, and many lives are saved because of the tireless efforts of Komen.
