Your help is needed now, more than ever.
Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta established the Komen Atlanta COVID-19 Action Fund to support urgent needs among our breast cancer community today.
Who’s at Risk?
The corona virus pandemic is new, unprecedented and confusing. Komen Atlanta is committed to keeping you informed with the latest news and guidance as the situation evolves.
Those most vulnerable within the breast cancer community include those living with metastatic breast cancer, breast cancer patients and survivors. Certain breast cancer therapies can cause immune systems to be compromised both during and long after treatment ends.
You can help ensure support continues for those in need, including:
Komen’s breast care information helpline.
Helping patients stay in treatment through assistance programs.
Guiding Patients through difficult decisions and providing social and emotional support.
Removing legal barriers to treatment and wellness for patients.
Making diagnostic services available to those with symptoms who need immediate follow up.
Funding for lifesaving research and clinical trials.
