THE IMPACT YOU ARE MAKING
Local People. 75% of the net proceeds raised by the Komen New Orleans Affiliate are used to fund community programs in southeast Louisiana that provide screenings, treatment, education, social, and financial support for women before, during, and after treatment. This is more important today than ever as Louisiana faces the second highest mortality rate from breast cancer in the nation. Since 1995, the Komen New Orleans Affiliate has invested over $3.8 million dollars in our community to provide breast screenings and give financial support to women and families. This year, the New Orleans affiliate funded $475,000 in local grants.
Global Research. 25% of the funds you raise go to Komen's Research Grant Program, which invests in studies seeking the causes, improved treatments, and ultimately the cures for breast cancer. Last year, Komen New Orleans sent $169,000 to fund breast cancer research.
