Help Us Keep the Promise!
Last year, Komen Central Virginia grants totaling $587,944 funded 3,810 clinical breast exams, 1,992 mammograms, 267 diagnostics procedures, and many other treatments and services. In addition, we invested $217,568 in breast cancer research through Komen’s National Research Grant Program.
Help Us Keep the Komen Promise by making a tax-deductible gift to the 2012 Komen Central Virginia Annual Fund that will help ensure the uninsured and underinsured in our community will not go without critical breast health services. Give now.
