Our Mission

It’s simple.  Komen Tri-Cities is fighting breast cancer.  How?

  • Funding programs that support those in the fight to save lives
  • Educating individuals about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them
What We Do

Komen Tri-Cities is the local source for funding programs that provide breast health services, breast cancer education and outreach in our 23-county service area.

We empower the residents in our service area with information about the importance of early detection and breast health. We donate 75 percent of net funds raised to vital local breast health services, and dedicate the remaining 25 percent to national research to find the cures.

Since 2005, Komen Tri-Cities has raised over $3.2 million with over $2.4 million in local programs and $800,000 in national research grants.

The Difference We Make

Komen Tri-Cities is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer, but we’re also focused on the local needs of our neighbors.  We are dedicated to educating the residents in our service area about breast cancer and the resources available along with funding life-saving screening and treatment programs in for our neighbors currently battling this disease.

The Difference You Make

Join Komen Tri-Cities in the fight to beat breast cancer.  You can donate your time or resources or host a fundraiser in our 23-county service area.  You can know your normal and encourage those around you to know theirs.  You can be a listening ear and strong shoulder to family and friends who are in the battle.  And you can be an inspiration and tell your story as a survivor.  There is a place for you in this fight.  Your dollar might be the one that ultimately finds one of the cures.  Your presentation might encourage a listener to get a mammogram and find her cancer at an earlier stage.  Contact us today.  We’re here to partner with you.
