Susan G. Komen North Jersey is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen North Jersey raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program . Komen North Jersey has raised more than $25 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our nine county service area.
