At Susan G. Komen, our mission is pretty simple: to save lives and end breast cancer forever. How we do it…well, that’s a bit more complex. We educate, support research, offer grants that provide financial and emotional assistance and advocate for better breast cancer policy. But in a broader sense, we empower others, ensure quality care for all, and invest in science to find the cures.
The Ozark Affiliate of Susan G. Komen is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Since its inception in 1998, the Ozark Affiliate has awarded over $11.3 million to local organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening & treatment programs for medically underserved women. In addition, $3.7 million has been invested in Komen National’s Research and Awards program in search of finding a cure. The Komen Ozark Affiliate’s service area covers Benton, Boone, Carroll, Crawford, Madison, Newton, Sebastian, and Washington Counties in Arkansas, and Stone and Taney Counties in Missouri.
