PRAY for the CURE
Salem Lutheran Church
Rev. Butler, long-time breast cancer survivor, pursued her vision for the event based on her professional experience and research as a chaplain to breast cancer patients. A survey among her patients revealed that their spiritual well-being greatly contributed to their perspective toward the disease and their treatment. Their spirituality provided hope for the future and gave meaning and purpose for life.
PRAY for the CURE is organized by an independent committee, in collaboration with Susan G. Komen, which includes breast cancer survivors and breast health advocates who have the support of community organizations and businesses. PRAY for the CURE serves as a prelude to the Susan G. Komen’s Signature Event, the MORE THAN PINK WalkTM, held each year. Events can still be held in communities and regions not hosting a MORE THAN PINK WalkTM event.
The steering is typically 5-7 persons, and includes a chairperson and committee chairs. The committee also appoints someone to record meeting minutes and serve as treasurer. The committee assignments are programming, promotions, and prayer.
Persons interested in having a PRAY for the CURE in their community should contact Komen Memorial at firstname.lastname@example.org.
