Our Mission

Save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Early Detection
Today, when breast cancer is detected early, patients have a 99% five-year relative survival rate when confined to the breast. When diagnosed at later stages, that survival rate drops to 24%. Learn more of the importance of early detection below. More information here

For the past 25 years, Komen has been committed to providing survivors throughout Oregon and SW Washington with the resources they need to feel empowered and take control in their fight against breast cancer. More information here
