Every year we honor and pay tribute to those who have been touched by a diagnosis of breast or gynecologic cancer.

  • Breast and Gynecologic Cancer Survivor Reflections
  • Poetry readings
  • Uplifting Musical performances

Lives Touched, Lives Changed

Each year the Coalition highlights a handful of survivors through professional photographs and sharing their cancer journey in writing. These powerful portraits and written stories are debuted at the ACTober (formerly ARTrageous Affair Gala) each year and proudly displayed on the Coalition’s walls.

We are grateful for the photographers who have donated their time and talent to make this beautiful tradition possible. Thank you to:

  • Lisa Gresens– 2019, 2020, 2021 portraits 
  • Deanna Wallace– 2018 portraits
  • Jacqueline Freitas for donating her time and talent for so many years.

Survivor Stories

These survivors have been previously featured in past volumes of the Breast Cancer Coalition’s quarterly newsletter, “Voices of the Ribbon.”
