We are all here for the mission; saving lives and ending breast cancer forever guides what we do each and every day at the Komen Minnesota Affiliate. For us, the women we serve are our highest priority in everything we do. Our local needs assessment is the primary driver of the Minnesota Affiliate’s funding decisions and community partnerships.
Locally incorporated, the Minnesota Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure raises funds through events like the Twin Cities and Brainerd Lakes Race for the Cure. Seventy-five percent of the money raised by the local Affiliate stays in Minnesota to fund life-saving programs that create access to breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining twenty-five percent funds research on a national level, some of which supports breast cancer research right here in Minnesota at the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic.
For almost two decades, our Affiliate has partnered with the Minnesota Department of Health’s Sage Screening Program to fund screening programs that provide free mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women in all 87 counties of Minnesota. Last year alone, our Affiliate funded breast cancer screening and diagnostic services for more than 9,000 women. Specifically, we funded more than 3,300 mammograms, 6,000 computer-aided detection readings, 100 breast biopsies, and 300 ultrasounds.
We rely on your support to help us fund life-saving, breast-health programs right here in Minnesota.
