Our Mission
It's simple. We're fighting breast cancer in Nebraska. How?
  • Funding programs that support breast cancer education, screening and treatment
  • Educating Nebraskans about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them
What We Do

We donate 75 percent of net funds raised to vital local breast health services, and dedicate the remaining 25 percent to national research to find the cures. Komen Nebraska serves thousands of women, men and families in 91-counties across Nebraska, as the local source for funding programs that:

  • provide low-cost or free screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and breast cancer treatment to uninsured or underinsured Nebraska residents
  • provide support services before, during and after breast cancer treatment

We empower Nebraska residents with information about the importance of early detection and breast health.

Since 1994,Komen Nebraska has invested almost $7 million into our 91-county service area through the annual community grants program to fund breast health programs and services for medically-under served residents.

The Difference We Make
Komen Nebraska is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer. But we're specifically focused on the local needs of our neighbors. We are dedicated to educating Nebraskans about breast cancer and the resources available along with funding life-saving screening and treatment programs for our neighbors currently battling this disease. Komen Nebraska funding provided the following in the 2012-13 grant cycle:
  • 408 mammograms
  • 2,158 clinical breast exams
  • 4 genetic tests
  • 970 women received patient navigation assistance
  • 400 women received emotional, physical and financial support services during their treatment and recovery
