#HipNJ Celebrates 20 Years of Komen North Jersey: Charles Way

Charles Way, former New York Giant, discusses his experience with the NFL and dealing with breast cancer.

“The NFL tries to bring awareness to breast cancer,” Way says. He and his wife were looking to involve themselves in an organization that provides support to those living with breast cancer.  

Way jokes that he “Decided to become a pink tie guy”.  This is just one of the many ways that Way and his wife show support for the Susan G. Komen cause and for all those living with breast cancer.

#HipNJ Celebrates 20 Years of Komen North Jersey: Ana Harper

Ana Harper, Forever Fighter and Susan G. Komen North Jersey supporter, discusses her battle with breast cancer.

The first time Harper was diagnosed, she was pregnant with her son. In a definitely strong manner, she responded “Okay, well let’s do what we gotta do”. 

Since then, her cancer has metastasized, but that hasn’t dampened her fighting spirit in the least bit. 

“The reason I cry is because I always think about how sad everybody else is around me, because of me,” she says. “Hopefully, everybody will get together and we’ll find a cure.”
