Komen Colorado seeks to ensure that everyone receives quality breast cancer care, regardless of ability to pay, age, insurance coverage, geographic location, educational attainment, race, ethnicity, language spoken, immigration status, sexual orientation, or gender affiliation.
Komen Colorado supports this on a local level by:
- Funding four non-profit organizations in El Paso, Fremont, Pueblo and Teller counties, to over the cost of breast cancer screenings, diagnostics, and treatment for medically underserved women.
- Linking women and men with breast cancer needs to organizations and community partners to receive needed care and services living in Colorado.
In order to meet the most critical needs in our communities, Komen Colorado conducts a community needs assessment every five years. Komen Colorado uses the results of the needs assessment to determine which communities most need support in reaching breast cancer outcome goals set at a state and national level.
