One out of eight women will have to fight breast cancer in her lifetime. That’s why, since 1999, Susan G. Komen® Austin has been hard at work here in the Austin area raising money to provide breast cancer screening, education and medical services as well as financial and emotional support. In fact, 75 percent of the money we raise each year is put to work right here in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties to improve the lives of everyone affected by this deadly disease. The remaining funds are dedicated to global research. For more information about the organization, please call 512-473-0900 or visit www.komenaustin.org.
