Commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Events Benefiting Komen Greater NYC

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this month — and in the months to come — check out the events hosted by our partners. A portion of proceeds from each will donated to Komen Greater NYC to help us achieve our vision of a world without breast cancer.

The money raised will help underwrite grants for breast education and outreach, screening coordination and support and treatment services to under served women in the greater New York City metropolitan area. Their numbers have increased during these past years of economic turmoil. The funds will also go to improved enrollment in local clinical research trials and national research into the cures.
