8th Annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon [VIDEO]

October 9, 2013

This year’s Pink Ribbon Lucheon, held at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton, discussed the new state law giving payment parity to chemotherapy in pill form.  Six Komen affiliates in Florida and 25 other cancer organizations pushed for the law, which goes into effect in July. “The year’s parity law marks a major victory, and now we can continue to fight to make sure all of our neighbors have access to treatment,” said Dayve Gabbard, executive director of Komen South Florida.
