“We walk together for hope,
we run together for strength,
we race until there is a cure.”

and an estimated 40,920 women will die as a result of breast cancer.
Approximately 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in men, with an estimated 480 deaths.

SUSAN G. KOMEN GREATER PENNSYLVANIA | In early 2018, the Pittsburgh and Northeastern Pennsylvania Affiliates of Susan G. Komen joined forces to make an even bigger impact in their work against breast cancer, forming Susan G. Komen Greater Pennsylvania. As we continue to meet the changing needs of the community we serve, our PROMISE remains the same: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all, and energizing science to find the cures. Today, and every day, Komen Greater Pennsylvania works to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
The work of Susan G. Komen Greater PA is a continual effort to meet the breast health needs of the affiliate’s 53-county service area across Pennsylvania, with 75% of funds raised supporting local breast health education, screening, and treatment initiatives and 25% funding breast cancer research. Komen Greater PA is proud to have invested more than $24.5 million back in our service area through programs that enhance the quality of life for women and men living with breast cancer and given over $10 million for breast cancer research that will help the organization meet its Bold Goal.
OUR MISSION | To save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
