Thank You From Susan G. Komen
May 05, 2016
Susan G. Komen Southern New England would like to thank you for your recent donation. Your gift will be used to help keep the promise on which our organization was founded: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Connecticut and Massachusetts are the states with the highest incidence of breast cancer in the entire country. This year alone, more than 8,000 residents of Connecticut and Massachusetts will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Thousands of families will face the loss of their sisters, wives, mothers and daughters because of this disease.
Kamen Southern New England is committed to the local fight against breast cancer. Seventy-five percent of the net funds we raise remain in the state in which they are raised, and are invested in essential local breast cancer education, screening, and treatment programs across the state. The remaining 25% is invested in research to find the causes and cures for breast cancer.
We greatly appreciate your support, and together we will end breast cancer forever.
