Our Leadership

Susan Sonley

Susan Sonley epitomizes the word “leader”..Susan is not only the DMV Tri-State MORE THAN PINK Walk’s top fundraiser, she is the top fundraiser across the entire Komen Walk series!

Over the past 24 years, Susan and her Champions of the Cure team have raised over $1.8 million, with Susan having personally raised $1 million of that amount.

In Susan’s own words: “As a three time breast cancer survivor, I personally understand how devastating this disease is. I’m the daughter and granddaughter of breast cancer patients. My mother fortunately survived more than 40 years after her diagnosis at 29. My grandmother survived three years after diagnosis.

I’ve been lucky. Why? Because of the research Susan G. Komen has put into this disease over the last 40 years. I am alive today in spite of three run-ins with breast cancers. I’ve been lucky to have been diagnosed at Stages two, zero and one respectively early enough to save my life.”
