Our Community Impact
Since 2000, Komen Central Tennessee has awarded over 397 local, community grants totaling over $10.1 million in our local 41-county service area of Greater Nashville, Upper Cumberland, Chattanooga and North Georgia. These local partnerships allow un-insured and under-insured women, and men, in our community to receive a screening or diagnostic testing they might not otherwise have been able to afford.
Through our 2019-20 grant cycle, we were able to provide the following:
- 7 MRI’s
- 12 Biopsies
- 88 Ultrasounds
- 92 Financial and Transportation Services
- 100 Health Navigation
- 156 Survivorship Support Services
- 185 Diagnostic Imaging Services
- 344 Mammogram Referrals
- 895 Clinical Breast Exams
- 2,064 Screening Mammograms
- 9,895 Women and Men will receive Education
Up to 75% of net proceeds remain in the 41-county affiliate service area to support breast cancer treatments, screening, education, and support services. The remaining 25% goes toward lifesaving research in all areas of breast cancer, from basic biology to prevention to treatment and to survivorship.
