After finding out about her breast cancer diagnosis, Nancy Sumas turned to her friend and fellow cancer survivor, Deb Belfatto. Although Nancy and Deb had been friends for years, Deb sharing her personal journey greatly impacted Nancy. Their friendship grew even stronger as Deb helped Nancy through her treatment.
Throughout Nancy’s involvement over the past two decades– personally and through Wakefern, the family business– she has seen the changes that have occurred within the breast cancer community here in the Garden State. The accomplishments of Susan G. Komen North Jersey gives Nancy hope for the future of the fight against breast cancer.
Kelly Nagle Witkowski, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen North Jersey, is proud to be part of a community that has provided so much love and support for those battling breast cancer over the past 20 years!
For two decades, Komen North Jersey has fought and continues to fight for equal health care and resources for all. Funds raised are given to local non-profit organizations that provide critical breast health programs for the Garden State’s most vulnerable population.

Kristin Wenger, survivor and Board President, discusses her experience with Komen North Jersey.
When she was diagnosed 12 years ago, Wenger had a hard time processing the information.
In an effort to cope with her recent diagnosis, she called Komen. She describes the call as a “total change to her path”. Wenger encourages others who have been diagnosed to reach out to Komen for a comforting presence and a helping hand.
