To save lives and end breast cancer forever.
Susan G. Komen® Austin is an Austin-based nonprofit committed to saving lives locally and fighting breast cancer globally. Since 1999 Komen Austin has invested over $10.2 million into breast health services and educational efforts in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties. An additional $4 million has been raised to fund global research studies to find the cures for breast cancer. Of the funds raised annually, Komen Austin invests up to 75 percent into local community health care grants and educational initiatives; the remaining 25 percent is invested into global research to find the cures for breast cancer.
Komen Austin is the only local breast cancer organization attacking the disease on all fronts – education, screening, treatment, follow-up care, survivorship support, advocacy and research. The organization serves the women and men in the city’s five-county area batting breast cancer by ensuring that barriers to care are removed for the uninsured and under-insured. Komen Austin encourages the local community to help save lives and end breast cancer forever by participating in year-round fundraising efforts and our signature events - the Susan G. Komen® Austin Race for the Cure and the annual Pink! Party.
