Our mission is to end breast cancer forever. This year we’re reigniting the sense of urgency behind our mission by highlighting the fact that more than 41,000 people die each year from breast cancer in the U.S. alone – that is unacceptable!
Komen Central Indiana is fortunate to have local and national partners that understand why Komen is the leader in the breast cancer space, and why supporting the work we do is the most valuable and impactful way to fight breast cancer. Donations to Komen Central Indiana save the lives in our community by funding programs for breast cancer health awareness, education and services.
In and beyond our community, donations fund groundbreaking research that will improve the way breast cancers are treated in the future. Komen dollars have touched every major advancement in breast cancer research for the last 30 plus years, totaling more than $988 million. In 2018 alone, Komen invested nearly $26 million in breast cancer research. Top save lives we must focus on finding breakthroughs for most deadly breast cancers and ensure that all people receive the care they need.
Komen is already one of the largest nonprofit funders of metastatic breast cancer research, investing more than $194 million in metastatic breast cancer research since our founding in 1982. We have funded more than 480 metastatic research grants and more than 50 clinical trials.
