Thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors, our Affiliate is able to fund many breast-health and breast cancer-related programs in this area.
Since our inception in 2008, the Susan G. Komen, Virginia Blue Ridge Affiliate has raised more than $1.5 million dollars for local breast cancer programs and national breast cancer research. The Virginia Blue Ridge Affiliate is working diligently to guarantee that every woman in this area has access to breast health care and education. To meet needs right here in our community, this year's grants specifically address funding for screening and diagnostic mammograms, outreach and breast health education programs, as well as treatment assitance for uninsured and uncerinsured women.
The Virginia Blue Ridge Afiliate granted almost $320,000 to six organizations in our service area this year.
