It will happen. How quickly is up to you.
It is a race against time, with the lives of our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends hanging in the balance. Each year 1.1 million women worldwide are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 410,000 die from the disease. Imagine being able to stop the breast cancer disease and its tragic consequences.
At Susan G. Komen® Northwest NC, 75% of net proceeds raised remain in our 11-county service area to fund mammograms, screenings and treatment, and education to the underserved and underprivileged in Alamance, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin Counties. The remaining 25% goes to our National Organization for the funding of research for finding the cures.
At Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, we make every penny count. In fact, 85 cents of every dollar spent goes toward our treating and curing breast cancer. It may be your donation that pushes us past a major turning point in discovering and delivering the cures. On behalf of the women who will be diagnosed this year, next year and in the decade ahead, we urge you to do as much as you can as soon as you can. You can rest assured we'll put your contribution to good use.
Our Vision: A World Without Breast Cancer.
