Ways You Can Donate

Saving lives…ending breast cancer forever

Up to 75 percent of the funds you donate remain here in San Diego County to cover every step of the breast health journey – from education, outreach, mammograms and diagnostics, to surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and material and financial support like meals, mortgage payments, support for children, prosthetics and wigs.  The remaining 25 percent of each dollar donated funds national research to discover the causes of breast cancer, and ultimately, its cures.  In fact, next to the U.S. Government, Susan G. Komen is the largest funder of breast cancer research in the world.

On behalf of the patients and survivors who will benefit all year because of your donation, thank you.  Thank you for making a difference in their lives and in the lives of future generations.

Circle of Promise

Susan G. Komen launched the Circle of Promise campaign to engage African-Americans in its mission to end breast cancer forever by fostering increased awareness, support, empowerment and action. African-American women have the highest death rate and poorest survival rate of any other racial or ethnic group for breast cancer. In an effort to rewrite the story of African American women and breast cancer, Komen has pledged to decrease the mortality of African-Americans from breast cancer by increasing awareness of the risk of breast cancer, reducing pervasive myths in the community, encouraging breast self awareness leading to early detection and treatment and mobilizing the community to collectively fight for access to quality care for all.
