An estimated 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer screening, treatment, and awareness are vital to ensure the health of individuals in our communities.
To best address the enormity and complexity of the issue, Komen Greater NYC believes that it is imperative to fund community-based breast health programs that provide culturally and linguistically appropriate education and outreach, screening coordination and support and treatment. We also fund local clinical research enrollment programs that assure access to clinical research for the medically under-served. Our National office of Susan G. Komen for the Cure supports research through its peer-reviewed granting program. For more information on that program, see www.komen.org.
