Susan G. Komen

Komen Greater Iowa is dedicated to supporting the fight against breast cancer through education, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship care throughout 106 counties, including the entire state of Iowa as well as Henry, Mercer, Rock Island and Whiteside Counties in Illinois, Dakota and Thurston Counties in Nebraska and Union County in South Dakota.

Through a competitive grant process, they are able to provide funding to hospitals, clinics and agencies to promote a continuum of care for those seeking breast health and breast cancer services. The continuum of care begins with education about the need for early detection, followed by screening, diagnostic services, treatment and post-treatment care.

Their Mission: At Susan G. Komen Greater Iowa our mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Their Vision: A world without breast cancer.
