Nancy G. Brinker to receive highest civilian award from White House

sgklogo_jpgWhile many of you may not know the name Nancy G. Brinker, I’m sure many of you know who her sister was; Susan G. Komen. It was Nancy’s promise to her dying sister that sparked what would become the largest organization for breast cancer awareness today known as Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Now Nancy will be honored with the highest possible award that a civilian can receive on August 12th when President Obama will award her with the Presidential Metal for Freedom.

What Nancy’s work has meant is a fighting chance for so many women who have been stricken with breast cancer and has helped so many that have had the dreaded news of a breast cancer diagnosis become eventual breast cancer survivors. wishes to congratulate Nancy for her tremendous award and wishes her continued success in her endeavours. As Nancy knows, finding a breast cancer cure is the responsibility of us all and only by working together will we be able to accomplish this.

On August 12th, the whole country will take time out to honor the work that Nancy has done, but we should all remember each day and do our parts to contribute. Once again Nancy, congratulations, I know your sister is looking down on you and smiling.
