#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino spent a beautiful Sunday at Liberty State Park in Jersey City for the Susan G. Komen North Jersey Race for the Cure! The weather that morning was a “perfect 10”, which matched the good vibes set forth by the survivors, fighters, supporters, and volunteers that make up the Komen community!
We live-streamed highlights from the day on our Facebook page; scroll down to see what you might have missed!
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.
