Spend your Mother’s Day weekend with your family and friends, making a
difference in the fight against cancer.
Thessalay Barnes shares details on the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
Last year, thanks to Komen funds: More than 900 low-income and uninsured
women received free mammograms; 128 breast cancer patients received
financial support for needs outside of treatment, such as rent and
transportation; 64 breast cancer patients received hospice care; thousands of
women were educated on ways to reduce their risk; a post-doctoral fellow at
Huntsman Cancer Institute is working on a $180,000 national Komen grant
to research ways to isolate breast tumors and prevent metastasis.
Breast cancer is a devastating and life-threatening disease that will affect one
in eight women in her lifetime. Most of us have been or will be directly or
indirectly impacted by the disease. Our grants are critical and must continue.
