Join Us in Supporting the Race for the Cure®

2017 Race for the Cure Susan G. Komen Greater Fort WorthMost people’s lives have been touched by cancer in one way or another, and fundraising for cancer research, grants, clinical trials and more is a constant today. But did you know that in the United States we’ve had a 38% decrease in mortality from breast cancer from 1989-2014? Fundraising works.

Investing in the Community

The Susan G. Komen® organization has invested more than $2.6 billion in research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Since 1992, Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth has raised more than $23 million, of which 75% of the net funds raised provides community health programs in Tarrant, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties and 25% of the net funds raised contributes to global research.

While these accomplishments are stunning, there is much more work to do to fulfill the promise of ending breast cancer forever. Every week 24 women are diagnosed and four women die from breast cancer in the four county service area of Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth. One out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

The purpose of Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth is to provide breast health services and education to the uninsured and underinsured women and men of Tarrant, Johnson, Parker, and Hood counties, as well as to fund the national Susan G. Komen Research Grants program.
