The findings from the 2015 Texarkana Affiliate Community Profile revealed the need to support services for the underserved populations in each of the target counties and that no matter how abundant healthcare resources are in the area, without communication and coordination, the efforts to reduce breast care disparities are fragmented.

Drawing from the profile the Texarkana Affiliate has identified the following funding priority areas:
Priority 1. Education/Awareness
Priority 2. Access
Priority 3. Coordination of Resources
A minimum of 25 percent of the net income from each domestic Affiliate Race supports the national Komen for the Cure Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific conferences around the world.
Up to 75 percent of the net income from each domestic Affiliate Race stays in the local community to fund breast health education, breast cancer screening and treatment support projects.
The deadline for applications is January 17, 2014.
About Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure®, we have invested more than $1.9 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
