Komen LA County is the local source for funding breast cancer detection, support and educational awareness in Los Angeles County. Through its community grants, Komen Los Angeles County is making key investments in the health of our community through education, cancer detection, resource navigation and support programs. We are currently funding 6local organizations that serve uninsured or underinsured women in need. Since our funding in 1995, Komen Los Angeles County has invested more than $10 million in local breast health services.
Each year an estimated 2,000 people lose their lives to breast cancer in LA County. Komen Los Angeles County’s community health grants are working to reduce this number while also improving the lives of those living with breast cancer.

- Funding for a total of 9 Community Grantees providing vital breast cancer health services for women and men in Los Angeles County.
