Susan G. Komen® Arizona is one of 102 U.S. and 2 international Affiliates dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Our service area encompasses the 15 counties in the state of Arizona, from Yuma to Flagstaff.
With a local staff of 10 and a volunteer base of more than 1,500 community members, Komen Arizona is committed to fulfilling the Susan G. Komen® Promise: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
While perhaps best known for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® – our affiliate is engaged in year-round activities that help us fulfill the Komen Promise on a daily basis:
- advocating for universal access to screening and treatment
- providing breast health education and community outreach
- serving as a resource for survivors and co-survivors
- funding life-saving education, screening and treatment programs in Arizona
We are proud that up to 75 percent of our net income stays in Arizona to fund vital mission programs, while 25 percent supports the internationally recognized Komen Award and Research Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.
Creating a world without breast cancer is a big job, and not one that can be done alone. Komen Arizona thanks all of our dedicated volunteers, sponsors, donors, event participants and other community partners for helping us play such a crucial role in our community.
