Who We ArePhotoBWPArchFountain

Susan G. Komen® St. Louis

The mission of Komen St. Louis is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Komen St. Louis is dedicated to meeting the breast health needs of the women, men and families most at risk and most in need in our 17-county Missouri/Illinois service area.

Through events like the Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure®, Dine Out for the Cure®, Spare Nothing for the Cure® and other year-round fundraising opportunities, Komen St. Louis has invested more than $39 million in the fight against breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised here stays in the local community to fund breast health and breast cancer screening, education and patient navigation programs. The remaining 25 percent goes toward groundbreaking global breast cancer research, including research being done right here in St. Louis.

Since 1999, Komen St. Louis has awarded more than $29 million in grants to local organizations that deliver life-saving breast health services to those who may not otherwise have access due to low income, lack of insurance or other barriers.

Komen St. Louis has contributed more than $9 million to Susan G. Komen® for global breast cancer research since 1999. At the same time, more than $20 million has come back to St. Louis facilities to fund vital breast cancer research. We are proud that more than 100 percent of the money raised here has remained in and returned to our community.
