Without a cure, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Without a cure, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer – and more than 1 million could die – over the next 25 years.
The generosity of our donors is essential as we continue our efforts to help breast cancer patients today, as well as to invest in the health of future generations.
Where the money goes?
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Central & Eastern Virginia Affiliate remains in the local community to fund breast cancer education, screening, treatment, and support programs for the medically underserved. To learn more about how Komen Central & Eastern Virginia funds are distributed, read about our community impact.
Twenty-five percent of funds raised support Komen’s National Research Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational, and scientific programs around the world.
You can join us in moving forward the breast cancer movement by making a monetary contribution to support our work at the Susan G. Komen Central & Eastern Affiliate.
