Breast Cancer Doesn’t Stop and Neither Should We

In this moment, we’re stronger together.

Your help is needed now, more than ever.

 

Rising unemployment, mandatory stay at home orders, and an overburdened health care system is causing a perfect storm for breast cancer patients who have questions or need care. Susan G. Komen Greater Iowa still needs your support for the needs among our breast cancer community today. Funds raised will help us support people facing breast cancer during this health and economic crisis. Your donation will ensure we are able to help those in need of support during this crisis.

And we’ll double your gift: our Board of Directors and volunteers will match the first $9,000 raised, dollar for dollar. To make a donation by check, please makes your checks payable to Komen Greater Iowa and mail to Komen Greater Iowa, PO Box 8468, Des Moines, IA 50301.

As other sources of donations decline and many fundraising events are rescheduled, we invite our community partners, local businesses, and donors to join us as they are able to help those in need during this crisis. By donating today, Komen Greater Iowa will be able to retain the flexibility to respond to any evolving and emerging needs.

 

 

Who Is At Risk?

The coronavirus pandemic is new, unprecedented and confusing. Komen is committed to keeping you informed with the latest news and guidance as the situation evolves.

Those most vulnerable within the breast cancer community include those living with metastatic breast cancer, breast cancer patients and survivors. Certain breast cancer therapies can cause immune systems to be compromised both during and long after treatment ends.

You can help ensure support continues for those in need, including:

Treatment Assistance

Helping patients stay in treatment through assistance programs.

Patient Support

Guiding patients through difficult decisions and providing social and emotional support.

Advocacy Efforts

Advocating for breast cancer patients, research, and needs among policymakers.

Research Funding

Funding for lifesaving research and clinical trials.

Support for breast cancer patients and survivors is imperative.

By donating today, Komen Greater Iowa will be able to retain the flexibility to respond to any evolving and emerging needs.
The initial priority is to address the needs of those impacted by breast cancer across our local communities.
