Our work is not done. Support of this event will help us reach our Bold Goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the United States by 2026.
Funds raised at the Visionary Awards Luncheon will be invested in the Komen Treatment Assistance Fund. The Treatment Assistance Fund aims to help those who are facing financial challenges by providing limited financial assistance, education, and support services to low-income, underinsured or uninsured individuals in the eight counties that we serve; Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Sonoma counties. Funding helps patients of any age who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, at any stage of the disease.
In addition, 25 percent of funds raised at the Visionary Award Luncheon will be invested in the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world. In 2014-15, Bay Area breast cancer researchers received more than $1.4 million from the Komen Research, Evaluation and Scientific Program.
