Help Us Close the Gap!

When I received my phone call from my doctor telling me I had breast cancer. I had no medical insurance. I just thought, “How am I going to get through this? It’s Stage-3, and it’s in my lymph nodes.” A nurse from the Toledo Breast Care Center said, ‘We’re going to help you,’ and she made a phone call for me. It was to Komen. I said, ‘Oh My God, I can’t believe it. All the Races I did, and me doubting where the money is going. It came right back to help me.'”

We truly loved seeing thousands of our friends at the Race for the Cure events in Findlay and Toledo this year. Thank you to all who registered, fundraised, and attended! I am so proud of this community for continuing to support the fight against breast cancer in such a big way!

However, our work is not yet complete. Even though all of the Race boxes and banners have been stored away for next year, Komen Northwest Ohio is still facing a fundraising gap of more than $20,000.

This affects Komen’s ability to fund programs in the coming year that support local women and men like our friend, Rose Klapp, who are fighting breast cancer. It also means we will have less to fund critical research to find the cures for breast cancer.

With a gift of $50, $25, even $10, you can make a huge difference today.
