Susan G. Komen® Greater Fort Worth is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure® and individual contributions, Komen Greater Fort Worth raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program. Komen Greater Fort Worth has raised more than $23 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our Tarrant, Parker, Johnson and Hood county service area.
