October Community Spotlight

The Federal News Network Community Spotlight is Susan G. Komen

For nearly 40 years, Susan G. Komen has been waging a war against breast cancer. This year alone, more than 40,000 people in the U.S. will die from breast cancer. That’s unacceptable! Breast cancer is unacceptable! That’s why Komen is determined to cut U.S. breast cancer deaths in half by 2026. With your help, Komen is making an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Your donations are saving lives and making progress in the mission to end breast cancer forever.

Be Bold. Be Fearless.

Be More Than Pink.

The National Capital region (NCR) has one of the highest rates for breast cancer incidence and mortality in the nation. The District of Columbia, specifically, has the highest incidence and mortality rates for breast cancer in the United States.
