ISSUE: February 2019

Mission

Save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Our Bold Goal is to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026.

Community Grant Recipient Spotlight

Project Angel Food.jpg

Project Angel Food receives funding from Susan G. Komen LA County to provide breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves with home-delivered medically tailored meals. Each patient receives nutritional assessments, which includes assessing their food intake, referrals to other food services in their neighborhood, level of daily activities and current medications with a Registered Dietitian. Meals were also tailored to suite breast cancer clients with co-morbidities and underweight clients receive additional breakfast and extra meal discussions for weight gain. Additional follow up from the Registered Dietitian, ranging between three months to a year, is determined based on the severity of a client’s medical condition.

#BlackHistoryMonth - Komen's African American Health Equity Initiative

BHM Image.jpg

“Differences in mammography quality and follow-up, treatment delays, & misuse or underuse of treatment are some of the patterns of care that contribute to the racial survival disparity in breast cancer.” – Dr. Funmi Olopade

It is critical to educate yourself on the breast cancer disparities that exist for African-American women. Learn more about how Komen is addressing the critical need in the African-American community.

Meet our new friend, Ashley

Ashley Stewart.jpg

Susan G. Komen is excited to announce a year-long partnership with Ashley Stewart®, the leading lifestyle and social commerce brand empowering women globally.

Stronger together, the two female power-houses have teamed up to form the True Divas Fight™ campaign in an effort to create a world without breast cancer. A particular focus of their collaboration will be Komen’s “Know Your Girls™” initiative, which, in partnership with the Ad Council, empowers African-American women to have ownership and understanding of their breast health. African-American women are 40% more likely to die from breast cancer relative to Caucasian women and that is unacceptable. Ashley Stewart’s goal is to help Susan G. Komen educate and inspire women to understand their risk for breast cancer and to take charge of their breast health by weaving in relevant information throughout its various campaigns in 2019.

To kick off the partnership, Ashley Stewart will be donating $1 to Susan G. Komen for each bra sold in stores or online from February 1 through February 28. In addition, they will be offering 40% off discount on all regular-priced bras with the code FIGHTBACK.
