Some Facts From Susan G Komen For The Cure
Breast cancer facts
1 in 8 women worldwide will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Each year, nearly 227,000 women nationwide will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and 40,000 will die from the disease.
This year an estimated 1200 Utah women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and 250 will die from the disease.
Utah ranks close to last for screening mammography rates in the nation.
According to our recent community needs assessment, the primary reason for this is lack of insurance and/or ability to pay for these services.
How are Komen funds used?
75% of net revenue funds local programs for breast health education, screening, and treatment.
Including the $633K recently funded to this year's grantees, Komen Salt Lake City has funded $4.76 million to Utah nonprofits for breast health programming (see details below).
With funds from last year's Race for the Cure, our grantees coordinated and provided assistance to over 900 uninsured and low-income women to receive mammograms through the state's free screening program.
Nearly dollar for dollar, the funds we contribute to research are used right here in the state of Utah.
Komen recently awarded three major research grants totaling $2 million to Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute.

Question: Where do I find the current City code?
Answer: The current City code can be found here.
Ed's connection with St. George began when he married Karen Bott, his wife of 55 years. Karen's father was born and raised in Castle Dale, Utah following her great grandparent's migration from Germany in 1884. The small city of St. George became a stopping place for Karen, who as a baby regularly visited her grandparents and family. St. George continued to a favorite stopping place following her marriage to Ed. He and Karen moved to St. George permanently in 2000. Ed is a graduate of Fullerton Junior College and earned a Bachelors Degree from Cal-State University Fullerton, California. Ed began his public service career in municipal government serving as a law enforcement officer. Ed enjoyed a second career in county government where he was charged with fiduciary and ministerial responsibilities in caring for the elderly and those deemed unable to care for themselves under court appointed conservatorships. During the course of 50 years of public service Ed has joined with associates in establishing many meaningful public service activities and organizations contributing to the wellbeing of the community. Upon becoming a St. George resident Ed continued to exercise his penchant for public service as a substitute school teacher at local high schools and has for over a dozen years, regularly attended city council meetings with the objective of reporting on the workings of Municipal and County Government endeavoring to keep the public educated and informed. Ed has proclaimed that the sentiments expressed by patriot Patrick Henry, "The Liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secured, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them," will continue to be the guiding light throughout his tenure on the St. George City Council. Ed has expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to serve and humbly recognizes the gift of trust and acceptance extended by his fellow citizens. "I am forever grateful to my parents for having instilled in me the recognition of what it means to be part of the American Family here in St. George and give thanks to my Heavenly Father for this Blessing." Ed and Karen have two children, eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, four of which were born in St. George. Ed is committed to maintaining the cultural values which have made this community so great and in supporting the Constitution of the United States of America. Council Member Ed Baca's current term expires December 31, 2019.
