Mission Statement

To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

Description

Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama, a local 501(c)(3) charity, works every day of every year to save lives in Alabama by serving women, men and families affected by breast cancer, by educating the community about the importance of screening and early detection and by providing access to life-saving services and treatment through financial funding and support. With more than 20 years of continuous local service, Komen North Central Alabama is the only organization in our area solely devoted to ending breast cancer through a multipronged approach of education, screening, treatment, patient support, research and advocacy.

Through the direction of our local board of directors, Komen North Central Alabama operates on a very lean budget with 4 staff members and over 1,200 volunteers. Seventy-five percent of funds raised locally are used to provide breast health and cancer screening, diagnostics, treatment and education services for women and men, and twenty-five percent of net proceeds support breast cancer research. Funding decisions are made locally - to meet the local need. To date, Komen North Central Alabama has provided more than $5 million for local community services and programs and over $2 million into cutting-edge breast cancer research. This funding has provided more than 19,500 free mammograms for underserved women in Alabama since 2003.
