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® strives to raise funds and awareness through events and legislative actions. Breast cancer is still claiming far too many of our loved ones’ lives. So, how will you get involved?
Komen Atlanta has trained a dedicated group of volunteers, who are able to spread the word about breast health and help in our mission to end breast cancer forever. Speakers Bureau volunteers can speak on breast health and breast cancer information. Click Here to learn more.

Advocate for Change:
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Advocacy Alliance takes a stand on issues of importance to cancer survivors, advocates, and others involved in the movement. Primarily, our positions relate to breast cancer research, early detection, and access to high-quality care. From time to time, we may also comment on other health-related topics and sign onto letters published by other organizations, which we feel may have an impact on the breast cancer community.
