Cati Diamond Stone is the Executive Director of the Greater Atlanta Affiliate of Susan G. Komen and a breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in April 2010, Stone began seeking opportunities to help others battling cancer.
After more than a year and a half of treatment that included chemotherapy, radiation and a mastectomy, she left her job as a general counsel for a Fortune 500 company to oversee development for non-profit Cancer Legal Line, which provides legal services at no cost for those affected by cancer.
Stone became an active supporter of Susan G. Komen when she learned that a drug used in the treatment of her aggressive cancer, Herceptin, was developed through funding provided by the organization. Since her diagnosis, Stone has participated in numerous Race for the Cure events and her 3-day team has raised more than $50,000 for breast cancer research.
She joined Susan G. Komen of Greater Atlanta in her current role in April 2013, in part to be closer to her family in Alabama.
