Win A "Connecting for a Cure" Gift Pack!

We all have been touched or affected by breast cancer some way or another. Individually we are strong, but together we are stronger. We encourage you to visit PinkTogether.com, an ever-growing community of hope of more than 680,000 breast cancer survivors and supporters. There you can share stories, post comments of encouragement and send virtual flowers to let someone know you are thinking of him or her.

On this site, you can also read the empowering stories from the 2010 Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors, five incredible individuals whose courage in the face of breast cancer serves as a source of inspiration:

  • Ebony Steele - This three-year survivor serves as a National Ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure´s® Circle of Promise, an effort focused on fostering breast cancer awareness, support, empowerment and action among African American women.

  • Eli Arroyo-Allen - A two-year survivor, Eli is the founder of the Loving Life/Amando La Vida program supporting Latina women with breast cancer.
  • Ginger Johnson - A mother and four-year survivor, Ginger is the director of Happy Chemo!, whose mission is to bring happiness to those dealing with the negative effects of chemotherapy and cancer.

  • Libby Pomroy - Libby is a two-time, 15-year survivor and a General Mills employee.
  • Nicole Vazquez - This three-year survivor is a Komen breast cancer activist in the Latino community.
These Survivor Ambassadors and their empowering stories will also be featured on the Pink Together Facebook fan page and YouTube channel, and on special pink packaging on your favorite General Mills´ brands like Cheerios® Cereal, Green Giant® Frozen Vegetables and Nature Valley® Granola Bars. If you or someone you know would make a great candidate for next year´s Pink Together Surviv
or Ambassadors, please visit PinkTogether.com for more information.

General Mills will donate $1 (up to $20,000) to Komen for each inspirational story submitted, encouraging comment posted, or virtual flower of support sent on PinkTogether.com, and for each shared message of hope posted on Pink Together´s Facebook fan page during the month of October (up to $5,000). This $25,000 is in addition to the $2 million donation General Mills has committed to Komen to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.

    I supported 2 local walks and also 2 fundraisers. The fundraisers in particular were a great source of companionship as many attendees were actively in treatment.
