SURVIVOR SPOTLIGHTpink Spotlight R.jpg 

Jo Robertson

Jo RobertsonJo Robertson of Lexington, KY knows that breast cancer changes a lot of things, but she encourages others to look on the positive side, as she has done after each of her three diagnoses. To read more about her survivor story, click here.

Women like Jo are the inspiration for the work we do at Komen Kentucky and why we work hard to fund research and share information about breast cancer and treatment options, among other things. If you are willing to share your Survivor story to provide hope and encouragement to others battling the disease, please contact us.

Pink ShoeCut the Tie - Shop for the CureDillard's Mall St. Matthews (5000 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville) will be holding a special shopping event for Komen Kentucky on Saturday, March 2 from 10am-8pm where 10% of your purchases made that day (from all departments) will support our mission. If you need ideas for Pink UnTied, Dillard's will be offering free beauty and styling tips. A special presale option will be available Monday, February 11-Friday, March 1. For more information, contact Dillard's at 502.893.4400 x-5999.



Komen Research Findings

A new study, funded in part by Komen, has uncovered a new way that cancer cells can break away from the original tumor and hide in other parts of the body, evading therapy designed to eliminate them before they can grow into metastatic tumors. The findings show that it’s possible to destroy cancer cells that can hide for years in people’s bone marrow.

Please help us continue our important research by making a donation today.
