The greatest part of the money we receive remains in the community as a source of help for Hoosiers in need. In 2017, Susan G. Komen Central Indiana® is investing nearly $700,000 in nine local projects to address the most critical needs for breast health and breast cancer in its 41-county service area.

Each year in central Indiana, approximately 2,065 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed and 420 Hoosiers will die from breast cancer. Based on the needs of local communities, Komen Central Indiana developed two grant programs aimed at saving lives: the Education and Linkage to Care Program and the Continuum of Care Navigation Program. These programs fund strategies proven to educate and provide access to healthcare services and to guide breast cancer patients through treatment.
Since 1992, Komen Central Indiana has awarded more than $20 million in community grants to local organizations that deliver breast health services throughout our service area. In 2016, your support made it possible for Komen Central Indiana to award more than $830,000 to local breast health service providers.
Last year’s grant cycle reached 46,000 Hoosiers and diagnosed 140 people with breast cancer, allowing them to access life-saving breast health services.
