Komen Connection_July - Research

Each year, 25% of funds you donate to our Affiliate goes toward the Komen National Research Program. Those research dollars support scientific research, conferences, research education and clinical trials.

The clinical trial is the research stage that is the most exciting, as it is the closest step to new approaches becoming available to patients.

Currently, Komen is funding over 70 products in the clinical research arena.

To Life! provides breast cancer support and education services to the Northeastern New York regional communities.

As a Komen Upstate New York Community Grantee, we fund a project to support bi-lingual breast health educators for women in Schenectady, Fulton and Montgomery Counties.The goal is to help remove barriers, like language and transportation, for screening, diagnostics and treatment.

Our investment also funds a monthly support group for those living with Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Komen funded & additonal resources are available throughout our service area. To see what's in your region, click here...

Community Impact_ 6 Mo Outcomes_July 2019

Each year Komen Upstate New York invests in community-based programs aimed at helping to achieve our Bold Goal: reducing breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026.

Early detection, access to screening, treatment and quality care is what saves lives. That's why, as an Affiliate, we have invested over $15.5M across our 49 county service area since our inception.

Each funded project reports back on their progress and key data, which is then shared with Komen Headquarters programs and amongst other Komen Affiliates nation-wide.

Komen Connection_July - Action

With support from Komen Upstate New York and Komen Greater New York City, New York State's 'Non-Medical Switching Bill' (S.2849 Peoples-Stokes | A.2969 Breslin) was PASSED by the state legislature! 

This bill helps to ensure that all prescriptions breast cancer patients are currently taking will remain at the same formulary level and cost throughout the contract period. 

Consumers who buy a health insurance plan based on a specific drug formulary are often patients with chronic illnesses, such as breast cancer, that have worked with their health care team to find the best treatment plan for their specific needs.

Thanks to this legislation, prescriptions will stay hands of doctors and based on what is medically best for the patient.
