Komen Tidewater is the local source for funding breast cancer detection, support and educational awareness in the Tidewater Affiliate service area. Since 2000, Komen Tidewater has invested more than $4 million in local organizations that provide breast health and breast cancer services.
The funds Komen Tidewater grants to community programs in our service area have made a positive difference in the lives of those living with this deadly disease.
Komen Tidewater funding provides:
- Breast health education throughout the 22 cities and counties in the Tidewater Affiliate service area
- Screening mammograms for medically underserved Tidewater residents
- Breast cancer diagnostic services
- Treatment assistance including transportation services to medical appointments, prostheses, and case management
