On March 21, Atlanta’s A Cure in Our Lifetime (CIOL) will hold its annual Spring Breakfast at Cherokee Town Club in Buckhead. This year’s keynote speaker will be Amy Silverstein, breast cancer survivor and author of the best-selling book, My Glory Was I Had Such Friends. Silverstein will discuss the power of women’s friendships and the critical role they played in her journey surviving two heart transplants and breast cancer. Myra Biblowit, President and CEO of Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), and Kimberly Goff, Executive Director of It’s the Journey, will also speak.

CIOL is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research and promoting breast health through education and outreach. The Atlanta chapter was founded in 2015 by East Cobber Jennifer Fink and Jody Goldstein. While all funds raised directly support breast cancer research, half of all money raised by the Atlanta chapter is strictly dedicated to research projects in Georgia. Since 1998, CIOL nationally has raised over $3,000,000 in the fight against breast cancer.

The event will take place at 9am on Wednesday, March 21 at Cherokee Town Club, 155 West Paces Ferry Road NW, Atlanta. There will be a breakfast buffet, a number of high value raffle items, and a book signing with Ms. Silverstein.

Tickets and additional information are available online at www.atlantacure.org.
