Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Kentucky® is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services.  The Affiliate works to ensure that all people, regardless of race, income, geographic location, sexual orientation or insurance status, have access to screening, and if diagnosed, to quality, effective treatment and treatment support services.

We are proud to have contributed over $11 million to Kentucky for breast health education, screening and treatment support programs.

Our Mission in ACTION

In addition to the funds we contribute to breast cancer research, we grant funding to local hospitals and other non-profit organizations for mammograms, mobile mammography units, lymphedema sleeves, patient navigators, transportation for patient screenings and/or treatments, educational materials for the medical and non-medical community, and survivor support programs and services.
