20 Years of Komen North Jersey: Denise Osborn

#HipNJ celebrates twenty years of Susan G. Komen North Jersey!

In 1998, Denise Osborn was diagnosed with breast cancer. After battling the disease, she decided to dedicate her life to volunteering. While she was researching different non-profit organizations, she found Susan G. Komen North Jersey.

The second she arrived at Komen’s doorstep, she was wrapped in love and compassion by Komen North Jersey’s founder, Deb Belfatto. It was at this moment Denise felt like she was “home.”

Throughout the years, Denise has spent hours counseling breast cancer patients and survivors. #HipNJ salutes this Forever Fighter in her steadfast mission to help end breast cancer forever!
