Did you know the single greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and getting older?
Yet, despite these facts, nearly 50 percent of women 40 and older in the United States who have insurance have not obtained a mammogram in the last year. I was inspired to take action!
This year, I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure because I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts.
You can donate online with your credit card by clicking the button above my fundraising thermometer.
Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
The Greater Kansas City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is playing an integral role in cancer education, screening and treatment. Through events like the Susan G. Komen Kansas City Race for the Cure, the Komen Greater Kansas City Affiliate has invested more than $9 million in community breast health programs in our 17-county area. To learn more about Komen Kansas City's grant partners, click on the "Grants" tab at the top of the page.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That’s our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
