Komen COVID-19 Action Fund
In This Moment, We’re Stronger Together.

Your help is needed now, more than ever.
Susan G. Komen established the Komen COVID-19 Action Fund to support urgent needs among our breast cancer community today.

Who's At Risk?

The coronavirus pandemic is new, unprecedented and confusing. Komen is committed to keeping you informed with the latest news and guidance as the situation evolves.

Those most vulnerable within the breast cancer community include those living with metastatic breast cancer, breast cancer patients and survivors. Certain breast cancer therapies can cause immune systems to be compromised both during and long after treatment ends.

You can help ensure support continues for those in need, including:

Helpline

Komen’s breast care and clinical trial information helpline.

Treatment Assistance

Helping patients stay in treatment through assistance programs.

Patient Support

Guiding patients through difficult decisions and providing social and emotional support.

Advocacy Efforts

Advocating for breast cancer patients, research, and needs among policy makers.

Research Funding

Funding for lifesaving research and clinical trials.

Breast cancer patients are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19. Learn about coronavirus and your risks.

  • To minimize exposure to COVID-19, Susan G. Komen suggests healthy women of average breast cancer risk who do not have signs of breast cancer delay their annual mammogram. At the same time, it’s just as important to know your normal and understand the warning signs of breast cancer to contact a doctor if you see changes.
