Our Mission
Susan G. Komen® Southern New England is committed to saving lives and ending breast cancer forever.
What We Do

Susan G. Komen Southern New England funds programs that provide breast health services as well as breast cancer education and outreach in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Unfortunately, our service area has very high incidence of breast cancer, with more than 9,000 women (and men) diagnosed across our states each year. The programs we support provide early detection services, education about breast cancer risks and treatment, and patient navigation programs. Seventy-five percent of the net funds we raise stay local to support our neighbors as they battle this disease, and the remaining 25% go to research to find the causes and cures of breast cancer.

Since 1993, Komen Southern New England has raised over $28 million, with $21 million funding local programs and more than $7 million going to national research grants.
The Difference We Make
Experts estimate that as many as one-third of women dying of breast cancer today could be saved without a single new medical breakthrough. That’s why we take a two-pronged approach: first, ensuring that all people have access to, and receive, timely, high-quality breast cancer care. And second, funding the research that will drive new treatments, and ultimately, the cures.
