You may be a runner, a volunteer or an activist. However you choose to get involved, just know that everything you do makes a difference. After all, without the support of people like you, the 10 million people who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the next 25 years could die.  These are our mothers, sisters, and friends who face breast cancer diagnoses every day. Susan G. Komen for the Cure® strives to raise funds and awareness  through events and legislative actions. Breast cancer is still  claiming far too many of our loved ones’ lives.

Our volunteers come in all sizes, shapes and colors, but their hearts are pink and their caring has no limit. Are you a leader, a thinker or a doer? Use your talents in our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever!  We need you now more than ever. Volunteers provide countless hours contributing their skills to further the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® promise. We will work with your availability.  Every minute you spend helping gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer.

Financial Summary
Mission Statement Komen's promise is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Background Statement Lexington Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure was formed in 1996 by a group of dedicated community volunteers committed to raising funds to increase breast cancer awareness and help in the fight to eradicate breast cancer.  On April 20, 1996, the first Susan G. Komen  Race for the Cure was held in Lexington at the Kentucky Horse Park.  The group became an Affiliate in 2000 and held their first Pink Tie Gala fundraiser in 2002.  Komen Lexington has raised millions of dollars for programs in central, south and eastern Kentucky counties.  75% of the dollars raised remain within the Affiliate service area through grant funding and education programs; the remaining 25% funds breast cancer research through Komen national headquarters.
Impact Statement
In 2012, the Susan G. Komen Lexington Affiliate granted $283,356 to the following programs: Kentucky Pink Connection, Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, King's Daughter Medical Center, American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, St. Joseph Breast Center, Madison County Health Department, St. Claire Regional Medical Center, Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital, Saint Joseph Martin, Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center and Marcum and Wallace.
The funds granted to these programs were made possible by successful events hosted by Komen Lexington including Couture for the Cure, Pink Tie Gala, Race for the Cure and many more.  
Our priorities for 2013:
Priority 1: Increase screening and treatment within the Affiliate service area within the next two years.

Priority 2: Increase awareness of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® within the Affiliate service area within the next two years.

Priority 3: Continued education and support of breast cancer patients, survivors and health care workers in the Affiliate service area within the next two years.
CEO/Executive Director Statement Komen Lexington’s biggest challenge is getting people to realize that although we have a large recognized name that we are local and for people to realize when they donate to Komen to realize whether they are donating locally or to the Komen Headquarters.  If they get a solicitation or email to look at it and see if it says Komen Lexington on it.  The reason that is so important is because 75% of the net funds raised by our affiliate stay local to help with screening, treatment, education, patient navigation and support services the remaining 25% is then sent to Headquarters to only support the research fund no overhead.  We are a small staff of three trying to support the our 58 counties in Central, South and Eastern Kentucky.  That is not to say if you live outside of those counties we won’t find you the help you need because we will.  We will also help you find help for other cancer help if needed so please give us a call of any services you may need.  We are finding ourselves spending more hours working directly with patients to find them resources they need when dealing with breast cancer.

Program Short Term Success

In 2011 Komen Lexington granted out over $360,000 of assistance to help reduce the mortality rates of breast cancer in Kentucky.  The agencies that received our funding were the Kentucky Pink Connection who provides patient navigation services, King’s Daughters Medical Center, Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital, St. Joseph Breast Center, Lexington Fayette County Health Department, St. Elizabeth Medical Center, North Central Area Health Education Center, American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, St. Claire Regional Medical Center, Madison County Health Department, St. Joseph Martin, Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center and Marcum and Wallace Irvine.

Program Long term Success Since the Affiliate’s inception in 1996 Komen Lexington has funded over $1.5 million for local programs, funding potential lifesaving services for the underserved and the uninsured men and women of Kentucky.  We plan on providing over $400,000 of local grants to the community in 2013 and hopefully continue to increase those numbers from there until a cure is found.  We are proud to say that 75% of our net funds are kept local to fund grant programs to save lives in Kentucky and then the remaining 25% is invested into research to find the cures.
