Laura Farmer Sherman, Affiliate Advisor 

Laura Farmer Sherman

Laura Farmer Sherman served as Susan G. Komen San Diego’s President & CEO for more than 10 years and is now serving as the Affiliate Advisor before her retirement in December 2017. It all began when Farmer Sherman volunteered for the San Diego Affiliate in 2004, one year after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  As an eleven-year breast cancer survivor and a former corporate communications executive, Farmer Sherman is passionate about Komen’s mission:  empowering women, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.  She is most proud of the relationships she has developed in the community, bringing a wide range of partners together to help fund support for research – and to help those women and men in our County who are literally choosing between whether they can put food on the table, or pay for a life-saving mammogram.
