Day 5 of our Building Better Holidays campaign features, Komen Greater Iowa, a non-profit organization 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: 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.
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we proudly painted Affinity passionately pink by wearing branded shirts.
