It’s simple. Komen Austin is powering the promise our organization was founded on each day - the promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. How?
- Funding local programs that support those in the fight to save lives.
- Educating individuals about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them.
- Funding research, to find better and more individualized treatments and ultimately the cures.
Komen Austin is the local resource for women who need free breast cancer screening, education, diagnostic and support services. Our continuum of care is a breast health care model that ensures all of a patient’s needs are met during their cancer journey.
We empower men and women affected by breast cancer in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson Counties with knowledge and resources. 75% of funds raised each year are put to work locally to provide free breast cancer screening, education and medical services as well as financial and emotional support to the uninsured and underinsured in our community. The remaining funds are dedicated solely to research to find better treatments and ultimately the cures. THIS WORK – OUR WORK – SAVES LIVES!
Since 1999 Komen Austin has invested over $14 million locally and in national research in the fight against breast cancer.
Komen Austin is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer. While we're committed to ending this dreaded disease, we’re simultaneously focused on saving lives locally until the cures are found. We are dedicated to educating the Austin area about breast cancer and the resources available to them and to funding life-saving breast health services for the uninsured and underinsured in our area.
