The Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference is designed to educate metastatic patients, breast cancer survivors, caregivers, and the general public on the ABCs of metastatic breast cancer. The first conference of it’s kind in Northeast Ohio, this event offers information on everything from the biology and causes of metastatic tumors to how to get involved in clinical trials, complementary therapies, and everything in between. The 2019 Metastatic Conference featured a keynote presentation from Komen Research Scholar Dr. Danny Welch of the University of Kansas, a panel of prestigious local oncologists, an patient advocacy panel, interactive breakout sessions, a vendor fair, and much more.


The Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award

The Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award honors the memory of Carol Jones and Jennifer Hendryx, who both passed away from metastatic breast cancer in late 2017. Their optimism and determination throughout their fight with metastatic disease was an inspiration to others and helped Komen Northeast Ohio renew our commitment to raising awareness of Stage 4 breast cancer. The Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award recognizes an individual, corporation, or organization who champions the Komen promise with the courage and limitless boundaries of Carol and Jennifer. The nominee goes beyond the scope of activist to inspire others to help in the fight against metastatic disease. Nomination forms for the 2020 Jones-Hendryx Forever Fighter Award will be available in December 2019.
