Komen NCTC Action Fund

In this moment, we’re stronger together.

Your help is needed now more than ever.

Rising unemployment, mandatory stay at home orders, and an overburdened health care system are causing a perfect storm for breast cancer patients who have questions or need care.  Susan G. Komen NCTC established the COVID-19 Action Fund to support the urgent needs among our breast cancer communities today, while also ensuring support and research continues in the future.

“Breast cancer does not stop during a crisis and neither do we. It seems now more than ever, Komen’s support of those affected by breast cancer is critical. But we can only be here for patients if we have funds available to deploy in assisting them.” – Krista Park Berry, executive director

As other sources of donations decline and many fundraising events are rescheduled, we invite our community partners, local businesses, and donors to join us as they are able to help those in need during this crisis. The Komen NCTC COVID-19 Relief Fund will retain the flexibility to respond to any evolving and emerging needs.

 

 

Who Is At Risk?

The coronavirus pandemic is new, unprecedented and confusing. Komen is committed to keeping you informed with the latest news and guidance as the situation evolves.

Those most vulnerable within the breast cancer community include those living with metastatic breast cancer, breast cancer patients and survivors. Certain breast cancer therapies can cause immune systems to be compromised both during and long after treatment ends.

You can help ensure support continues for those in need, including:

Helpline

Komen’s breast care and clinical trial information helpline.

Treatment Assistance

Helping patients stay in treatment through assistance programs.

Patient Support

Guiding patients through difficult decisions and providing social and emotional support.

Advocacy Efforts

Advocating for breast cancer patients, research, and needs among policymakers.

Research Funding

Funding for lifesaving research and clinical trials.

Support for breast cancer patients and survivors is imperative.

The Komen NCTC COVID-19 Relief Fund will retain the flexibility to respond to any evolving and emerging needs.
The initial priority is to address the needs of those impacted by breast cancer across our local communities.
