In the coming weeks, you can be assured that the work of Susan G. Komen® Central Tennessee will go on. That’s because our community is made up of people like you that are committed to the Komen Mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
In good times and bad, we know you’re with us. That’s what makes you special. As we get through the crisis that has been created by the coronavirus pandemic, we want to make sure that we are focused on taking care of our families, neighbors and friends.
Below, you will find local resources available through our affiliate. Remember, both our Nashville and Chattanooga offices are closed until further notice but our staff members are still here to help! As we work from home, please contact us with any questions you might have.
