MISSION: Save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
Since 1993 Susan G. Komen Memphis-MidSouth has provided almost $10.5 million in direct grants to local healthcare providers in the Mid-South and over $3 million to breast cancer research.
For every dollar that Komen Memphis-MidSouth Mississippi raises, 75% remains in the local community for breast healthcare grants and educational programs. The remaining 25% funds breast cancer research.
Your support enables us to provide much needed healthcare funds for the local community and continue our mission to eradicate breast cancer through education, support, screenings, diagnostics, treatment, and research. The Susan G. Komen network is the largest non-profit funder of breast cancer research in the United States. Only the US Government funds more breast cancer research.
