The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To save lives and end breast cancers forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all, and investing in science to find the cures.
Susan G. Komen Louisville, along with those who generously support us with their talent, time and resources, is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancers in our community! We join more than three million breast cancer survivors and countless activists around the globe as part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer. The Louisville Affiliate is proud to have contributed over $5.6 million to the community for breast health education, screening and treatment programs; and nearly $2 million to breast cancer research. 75 percent of funds generated by Komen Louisville remain in our local service area; 25 percent of funds support Komen breast cancer research.
Our service area encompasses 15 counties: Breckinridge, Bullitt, Grayson, Hardin, Jefferson, LaRue, Meade, Nelson, Oldham, Shelby and Spencer counties in Kentucky, and Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Scott counties in Indiana.
Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, donors and sponsors, Komen Louisvlle is playing a vital role in the fight against breast cancer in Greater Kentuckiana!!
