Our Mission

It’s simple.  Komen Western New York is fighting breast cancer.  How?

  • Funding programs that support those in the fight to save lives
  • Educating individuals about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them
What We Do

Komen Western New York is the local source for funding programs that provide breast health services, breast cancer education and outreach in our Western New York county service area.

We empower the residents in our service area with information about the importance of early detection and breast health. We donate 75 percent of net funds raised to vital local breast health services, and dedicate the remaining 25 percent to national research to find the cures.

Since 2000, Komen Western New York has raised over $7.7 million with over $4.5 million in local programs and nearly $2 million supportingthe Komen National Research Grant program which is focused on energizing science to fin the cures. These National Grants support cutting-edge cancer research, including work at Western New York institutions where Komen has granted more than $6 million for breast cancer research programs currently in progress at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the University at Buffalo.

The Difference We Make

Komen Western New York is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer.  But we’re also focused on the local needs of our neighbors.  We are dedicated to educating the residents in our service area about breast cancer and the resources available along with funding life-saving screening and treatment programs in for our neighbors currently battling this disease.
