Celebrating the Life & Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King

Komen Philadelphia Board President, Ronald Harper, invites the community to take pride in their service and keep up the good fight.

Ron HarperDear Friends,

Among the many inspirational quotations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I find this to be one of his most empowering:

“Everyone can be great because anyone can serve.”

In my activism with Komen Philadelphia, I have seen so many people embrace their ability to do great things in the fight against breast cancer that, indeed, we are winning this fight!

For this, Komen Philadelphia and I thank you.

We thank the volunteers who give just one hour of time, and the donors who give even $1 to help another. We thank every advocate and caregiver—every friend taking another to an appointment, every loved one offering a hand to hold in a moment of despair.

We also invite you to join us in celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by reminding the women you cherish to schedule their mammograms. (If any of them are in need, click here for a list of our grantees providing free mammograms.)

Through this loving act of service, we keep Dr. King’s legacy alive, and help save more lives.

With thanks,


Ronald J. Harper, Esq.
President, Board of Directors
Susan G. Komen Philadelphia
