Northern Nevada HOPES
Northern Nevada HOPES uses Komen funds to operate its Breast Health Clinic. The Clinic assists low-income uninsured and underinsured women in northern Nevada access breast cancer screenings and diagnostic tests. Komen funding at the Clinic contributes to critical services such as 1) providing reminders to clients in need of mammograms, 2) providing breast cancer education and referrals, 3) removing barriers to referral completion, and 4) coordinating follow-up activities. Uninsured and underinsured women age 40 and above are the primary target population. However exceptions, for women under age 40 with a family history of breast cancer will be made. HOPES program increases the number of women who enter and stay in the continuum of care. Because the program increases the chances of early detection of breast cancer, it will also increase the number of women who stay in, and/or progress through the continuum of care.

Reno Cancer Foundation
The Reno Cancer  Foundation Project addresses the social and medical needs of patients living with metastatic breast cancer.  The Project provides financial assistance to patients who  are ineligible for or who  have exhausted other available resources. Patients will receive assistance for daily  living expenses,  uncovered medical needs, and transportation. This support will result  in more  breast cancer  patients accessing treatment and remaining in the continuum of care, thereby improving quality of life and survival rate of breast cancer  patients in our community.

Community Health Alliance
Community Health  Alliance receives Komen funding for its Breast Health  Program that provides outreach, one-on-one education, breast cancer  screening, diagnostic services and treatment support in Washoe County low-income, uninsured or underinsured patients. CHA selects  patients for services  who  have no other source  of care. By removing cost barriers to screening and diagnostic services,  and by addressing other barriers through the use of a navigator, CHA expects to see fewer cases of later-stage diagnoses of breast cancer  and therefore, we expect fewer deaths  due to breast cancer.

Access to Healthcare Network
Access  to Healthcare Network uses Komen funding to assist low  income women in Nevada with necessary breast cancer  treatment services.  Assistance is based  on financial need and provides discounted breast cancer  treatment prices  (often 50-75%  of normal bill charges) and/or subsidies (usually 50%) to pay for breast cancer  treatment services.  Women who  have employee insurance, self-pay insurance, private subsidized insurance, who  are uninsured, or who  participate in Nevada Medicaid may be eligible.
