ISSUE: March 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

Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry is one of Komen LA County’s 2018-19 community grant recipients! One of the organization’s initiatives is to provide monthly psychosocial support intervention sessions through resources and tools geared towards living a healthier lifestyle including emotional, financial, spiritual and physical support. Their focus is to help develop cancer care plans to encourage survivors to communicate with their doctor. Their outreach with breast cancer survivors included monthly phone or face-to-face conversations to encourage, motivate and navigate throughout the survivors’ continuum of care.
