Susan G. Komen Tidewater is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure, Pinko-de-Mayo and individual contributions, Komen Tidewater raises money to fund grants to local non-profit organizations, health departments, and hospitals that provide breast cancer screening, diagnostics, treatment support and survivor-ship programs to those in need in our communities
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate 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 support the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program. Komen Tidewater has granted out more than $4 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our service area since 1999..
