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.

Local needs

  • 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.
