Susan G. Komen Kentucky
Our Vision
A world without breast cancer
 
 
 
 

 An estimated 1 in 8 women and 1 in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. In 2018, approximately 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women, and 2,550 cases will be diagnosed in men in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society.

 

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE…This is why Susan G. Komen Kentucky is fighting to find the cures for breast cancer. However, we can’t do it alone, WE NEED YOUR HELP, JOIN OUR FIGHT!

 Lexington Race for the Cure

Facts like these are the reasons we are all here, and why we race!  We invite you to join our fight against breast cancer by participating in this year's Lexington Race for the Cure on October 27, 2018. You can register, donate or volunteer HERE. Come out and see what Pink Makes Possible!
