Marcy Twardak, a breast cancer survivor and Corboy & Demetrio CFO, was honored as a "Hero" by Komen Chicago and appears in a new PSA on breast cancer awareness.

Online PR News – 03-November-2016 – Chicago, IL – Corboy & Demetrio CFO Marcy Twardak, a 25-year breast cancer survivor, was recognized as a Susan G. Komen Chicagoland Hero at Komen's "Ignite the Night" Gala on October 22, 2016.

Marcy was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer when she was 34 years old and had three children under the age of seven. She has been cancer free since 1991. Marcy is an accomplished legal executive who sits on a number of non-profit boards, including the Chicago-based Ovarian Cancer Symptom Awareness Organization, which she chaired for two years.


Marcy's "Hero" story was part of Komen Chicago's new public service announcement video, which was played at the Gala. Marcy's daughter, Katie Twardak, now 32, also appears in the video.

Komen Chicago's goal for the inaugural gala was to bring to light treatment and survivorship disparities of breast cancer in minority communities in Chicago. Eradicating these disparities is also important to Marcy Twardak.

"I enthusiastically support all of the work that Komen Chicago does to save more lives, and especially its new campaign to help bridge the gap so that WHERE you live shouldn't determine IF you live," she said.
