2010 Heroes

Angela and Nan Stanford

In 2009, Nan Stanford, mother of LPGA player Angela Stanford, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Together, Angela and Nan have publicly addressed her health and advocated for education on treatment options. In 2010, Angela partnered with The Val Skinner Foundation and Veins for Life (VFL), an awareness program developed by C.R. Bard, Inc., to help breast cancer patients and their families take an active role in decisions regarding their chemotherapy treatment.

Crystal King

In 2003, King was diagnosed with breast cancer. Because her mother had also been diagnosed just three years earlier, she was already involved in Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities. In January 2008, King quit a great job on faith to follow a different path. She now works for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. As a Pink Together Survivor Ambassador, she works every day to help women overcome their own battles with breast cancer.
