Volunteer Valerie Hawthorne

Meet Valerie Hawthorne  :  Komen Volunteer of the Month June 2016

Dr. Hawthorne drives our Public Policy efforts by meeting with elected officials to educate them on Komen efforts, the needs in the community and services available to underserved residents.  She brings her passion, expertise in public policy and knowledge of breast cancer to every conversation she has.

Why do you support the fight against breast cancer?

“I use my background in breast cancer biology and my relationships with our elected officials to advocate for the missions of Susan G Komen and for those whose voices go unheard.”

What is your favorite part of working with Komen Houston?

“The tenacious staff, the dedicated volunteers, and living in a city that is determined to make a difference in our communities.”
