Our Mission
It's simple. We're fighting breast cancer in North Texas. How?
  • Funding programs that support those in the fight to save lives
  • Educating North Texans about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them
What We Do

Komen North Texas serves thousands of North Texas men and women in 13 counties as the local source for funding programs that:

  • provide low-cost or free screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and breast cancer treatment to uninsured or underinsured North Texas residents
  • provide support services before, during and after breast cancer treatment

We empower North Texas residents with information about the importance of early detection and breast health.
We donate 75 percent of net funds raised to vital local breast health services, and invest the remaining 25 percent in national research to find the cures.
Since 1991, Komen North Texas has invested more than $13 million into North Texas via our annual community grants program to fund breast health programs and services for medically under-served North Texas residents.

The Difference We Make
Komen North Texas is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer. But we're also focused on the local needs of our neighbors. We are dedicated to educating North Texans about breast cancer and the resources available along with investing in life-saving screening and treatment programs for our neighbors currently battling this disease. In 2014, Komen North Texas:
  • Provided 2,120 North Texans with breast health educational materials
  • Enabled 1,637 North Texans to receive clinical breast exams, mammograms, or diagnostic services
  • Funded the detection of 42 breast cancers
  • Helped 169 North Texans receive treatment assistance
  • Empowered 1,758 North Texans to have access to support services like transportation, patient navigation, and counseling
