“I am deeply honored to serve our community and lead Komen Charlotte in its commitment to saving lives by meeting the most critical needs of those fighting breast cancer. I am inspired each and every day by the courage, strength, grace and positivity of my closest friends who have been touched by breast cancer. They are fearless survivors who are the bravest women I know.  My “why Komen” is my two daughters and granddaughter and the hope that through Komen’s funding of research to find cures, that they may know a world without breast cancer.

I am so thankful to our community businesses, organizations and families, for it is through the power of your philanthropy that Komen Charlotte is able to fund breast health programs throughout our 13-county area for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. We are forever grateful!”

“I am thankful for the opportunity to serve our community and to work for an organization that provides help to those in need on a daily basis. Over the years, I have met so many incredible women and men with stories that inspire me to work harder for change every day. One woman in particular, left an impression on my heart right after I started working with the Affiliate in 2011 – Reba Whaley. Reba was a single mom who had used Komen Charlotte funding to help before her first diagnosis. She spent hours volunteering for Pink Sunday and as a Komen Education Ambassador. She was beautiful, full of life and positive energy, hilarious, passionate, had a heart of gold, and she was a survivor. A few years after her 5-year cancer free party, she received the devastating diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer. She preserved. She still volunteered and radiated positivity. Reba lost her battle in 2016 at the age of 49.  My passion for Komen Charlotte is fueled by the desire for no daughter to lose her mother, no husband to lose his wife, no family to lose a loved one, and to create positive, lasting change in our local communities.”

Interim Marketing and Communications Director

“I work with Komen Charlotte because I have a strong interest in women’s health issues and do not want my daughter’s generation of women to have to worry about getting breast cancer, just because they are women and they age. These are two factors that should not be “risks” associated with cancer or any other illness/disease.”

“I chose Komen because of it’s huge impact in the city of Charlotte. I have personal experience with friends and family overcoming different forms of cancer. Their strength and courage inspire me to do more. I’m honored to be a part of such an amazing organization that is raising awareness and truly making a difference.”

I am honored to be a part of Komen Charlotte because I have a strong passion for eliminating health disparities and Komen Charlotte is working towards that goal by  helping members of our community get access to quality breast health information and resources. Komen invests in local communities and groundbreaking research and that fuels my passion for wanting to be a part of this mission.”



Kendall Bode
Education and Outreach Coordinator

“In 2016, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. As I watched my mom battle breast cancer, I developed a passion to help other women who are fighting this disease. Susan G. Komen Charlotte gives me the opportunity to help women whose lives are being impacted by a disease that has personally affected my family.”




Robin Saddler
Special Project Coordinator- Pink Bows

“I choose Susan G. Komen because of my mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in 1999.  Komen’s bold goal and continued history of serving the community has made an impact in my life. I want to help women remember to get their mammograms and know what’s normal for them.”
