November 14, 2005

“The most powerful women in breast cancer” were honored in October as part of the Avon Foundation Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer awards. The ceremony was held at Tavern on the Green in New York City. The fundraising gala featured appearances by musical artist Jewel and tennis superstar Serena Williams, who received the Celebrity Role Model award.
The Medical Advancement award was issued to Nancy Davidson, MD, director of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center’s breast cancer program. New York City-based The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) was honored with a community advocacy award, while Gwen Darien, publisher/editor in chief of MAMM magazine, was honored for media leadership. Avon’s breast cancer crusade has generated more than $250 million for breast cancer research and care organizations worldwide, organizers said.
