Susan G. Komen Southwest Ohio is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen Southwest Ohio raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our 21-county Greater Cincinnati service area to fund breast health programs for women and men who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program. Komen Southwest Ohio has raised more than $10.3 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects.
This year alone, the Affiliate awarded more than $165,000 to local breast cancer and breast health programs, and an additional $150,000 for research.
The need is great and we can only make a difference with your support.
