Community Impact

As a combined force, Susan G. Komen® Nevada remains committed to fulfilling the Susan G. Komen Promise: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

The consolidation of Susan G. Komen® Northern Nevada and Susan G. Komen® Southern Nevada into Komen Nevada aims to establish a stronger, more sustainable affiliate that will be better positioned to help even more women and men throughout Nevada who are affected by breast cancer. The mission will remain a top priority, and consolidating operations will allow the Affiliate to drive even more resources to support the Nevada community.
