#HipNJ Celebrates 20 Years of Komen North Jersey: Nancy Sumas

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.
