Thank You for Supporting the 2015 BigWig Campaign.
As a Savannah BigWig, I would like to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. I have created this fundraising page and I have set my fundraising goal at $1,000 because I know that I can make a difference and save lives. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax deductible donation today.
Every donation counts and helps Komen Coastal Georgia fund vital national research and provide free local screenings, diagnostics, and education for under-served residents.
Komen Coastal Georgia
Since Komen Coastal Georgia’s inception in 2006, we have invested over $2 million in local community programs and over $700,000 into cutting-edge breast cancer research. In the last five years, Komen Coastal Georgia has funded 7,053 screening services, 1,375 diagnostic services, resulting in the detection of 126 treatable Breast Cancers!
Furthermore, the Affiliate has collaborated with community partners to develop and fund targeted outreach and navigation programs to reach under-served populations and has invested in research that has reduced the death rate for breast cancer by 30 percent in the last 25 years.
Susan G. Komen…
For the past 25 years, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don’t find a cure. Komen will not stop until the cures are found and delivered.
We Will Find the Cure!
The key to survival is early detection.
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. We must continue to keep breast cancer top of mind because it affects so many!
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s one in eight within your company, school and organization. Now is the time to take action, to secure a long, healthy future for our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends!
Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self- exams. It is important to make healthy lifestyle choices.
And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
