Where Your Money Goes
Susan G. Komen® is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life. Komen Kansas City is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in the local community. Through events like the Komen Kansas City Race for the Cure®, Komen Kansas City has invested $16.2 million in community breast health programs in our 17-county (Kansas & Missouri) service areas and has helped contribute to the more than $889 million invested globally in research.
The positive impact of this funding is significant, but it is not enough – as the need in our community grows.
