It's simple. We're fighting breast cancer in El Paso
- Funding programs that support those in the fight to save lives
- Educating El Pasoans about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them
Komen El Paso serves thousands of El Pasoans as the local source for funding programs that:
- provide low-cost or free screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and breast cancer treatment to uninsured or underinsured El Paso residents
- provide support services before, during and after breast cancer treatment
We empower El Paso residents with information about the importance of early detection and breast health.
We donate 75 percent of net funds raised to vital local breast health services, and dedicate the remaining 25 percent to national research to find the cures.
Since 1993, Komen El Paso has invested more than $4.4 million into El Paso via its annual community grants program to fund breast health programs and services for medically-under served El Paso residents.
