Addressing the Need
Establishing Food Security for Breast Cancer Patients & Their Families
Undergoing treatment for breast cancer and metastatic disease is taxing physically, emotionally and financially. More than half of all Susan G. Komen® Helpline callers have barriers related to economic needs, including food insecurity. Komen patient navigators work closely with breast cancer patients and see firsthand the struggle of making ends meet and being without necessary resources.
Thanks to partners like Giant Eagle, a 2021 CARE Pillar partner, we’re able to help breast cancer patients in our community. As a longtime partner of Komen, grocer Giant Eagle is dedicated to giving back to the communities they serve, recently extending their work to align with Komen’s CARE Pillar. Through these new efforts, Giant Eagle is improving patient access to fresh, nutritious food while increasing the reach of Komen’s Treatment Assistance Program. Together, we are ensuring ALL families have access to the care and resources they need.
No matter where breast cancer patients are in their care journey, there are ways you can help, too. Did you know that $100 could provide groceries for a breast cancer patient for a week?

Get Involved as an Advocate
Being an advocate for breast cancer awareness and research funding is one of the best ways you can make a difference.
Only through government action can we make the broad, systemic and lasting change we need to help us achieve our goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. By mobilizing our communities to take action, we can ensure the voice and needs of those with breast cancer and their loved ones are heard by policymakers and government regulators.Learn more about becoming an advocate
