As previously announced, the evening's highlight will be the HERS Awards presentation. Given to individuals and organizations that demonstrate outstanding dedication to breast cancer survivors and HERS Programs, the awards represent what the organization strives to provide for each of its patients: Hope, Empowerment, Renewal, and Support.
