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 us to drive even more resources to support the Nevada community.

Susan G. Komen® Nevada has been raising funds and supporting Nevada communities for 25 years. We seek to create a world without breast cancer. As we work to make that vision a reality, we are committed to alleviating the suffering of those with the disease now. So, we apply a 360-degree approach to fighting this killer disease across all fronts so that patients can live better longer lives.

We will continue to strive to support those affected by breast cancer today, while tirelessly searching for tomorrow’s cures. We advocate for strong public policy, fund lifesaving research, empower patients with trustworthy information, improve access to high-quality care, and offer treatment assistance and patient support.

With the support of the community, Komen Nevada will continue to make a difference in the lives of those in our service area as the need only grows for local breast health services and programs.
