Help Komen Help Breast Cancer Patients

Nobody plans for breast cancer. One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, yet the words, “You have breast cancer” often come as a complete shock.

Susan G. Komen meets breast cancer patients where they are and ensures nobody faces breast cancer alone. Whether a patient needs someone knowledgeable to speak with to understand her diagnosis, or help accessing and affording follow-up testing and care, Komen is there.

Loved ones, too, can contact Komen for support and help identifying resources to get them through difficult times.

But Komen cannot do it alone. Komen relies on the support of donors so it can be there when the next person hears, “You have breast cancer.”

Learn more about ways to get involved and help Komen help others. See how your donation can make a difference in someone else’s life so that no one faces breast cancer alone.
