Susan G. Komen of Acadiana held its annual board meeting and appreciation breakfast at Joey’s, appointing some new board members in the process. “I’ll be taking notes and giving input,” said five-year survivor Monza Williams, who will serve as new secretary on the Executive Committee. Up early were Mike Crowson and Komen area directors Styphanie Duplissey, Kate Labue and Gretchen Daniel. The Komen mission is to save lives, ensure quality care and energize science to find the cure for breast cancer.
