In 2013, your support enabled Komen Central Indiana to grant $1.3 million to 14 local breast health programs (grantees) and contribute more than $500,000 to research for the causes, improved treatments and cures for breast cancer.
Grant funds cover outreach, access to care, diagnostics (MRIs, biopsies, ultrasounds), treatment assistance, health care navigation, medication assistance and support services such as transportation, child care, wigs, prosthetics and whatever else is needed to make sure patients can complete treatment with the support they need.
*If a resident lives in Komen Central Indiana’s 21-county service area and is in need of breast health assistance, she or he can contact the nearest grantee to find local resources.
The grant selection committee consisted of 14 community members who prioritized the applicant programs based on the needs outlined in the most recent community needs assessment.
