Susan G. Komen(r) Missouri
The mission of Komen Missouri is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Komen Missouri is dedicated to meeting the breast health needs of the women, men and families most at risk and most in need in our 38-county Missouri/Illinois service area.
Through events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure(r), Dine Out for the Cure(r), Trivia Night and other year-round fundraising opportunities, Komen Missouri has invested more than $30 million in the fight against breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised here stays in the local community to fund breast health and breast cancer screening, education and patient navigation programs. The remaining 25 percent goes toward groundbreaking global breast cancer research, including research being done in our service area.
Since 1999, Komen Missouri has awarded more than $29 million in grants to local organizations that deliver life-saving breast health services to those who may not otherwise have access due to low income, lack of insurance or other barriers.
